|A smooth ride at last, no pot holes!|
The good thing about staying in a motorway service area overnight is that they sell croissants!

Sunday 13th January
Another day by the coast with the sounds of huge waves crashing onto the beach. Not a cloud in the sky today and it was warm, warm, warm as we heard about the predicted snowfall in the UK. Stay safe everyone x

Dog walking, reading and relaxing again were the order of the day. Dogs had a long run on the beach this morning and were very tired for the rest of the day as was Nigel who is feeling much better now. I stayed to do some ‘domestics’ this morning and was glad I did as I was alerted as I was changing the bedding by a bird call I didn’t recognise and had good views from the window of a Moussier’s redstart.

Isn’t he pretty?
(picture from google, I’m afraid!)
Thankfully, one came back this afternoon so Nigel got to see it too, not sure he believed me when I told him what I’d seen.
Tomorrow we will try to get to the lagoon and hope to see some bald ibises which are certainly not pretty but are now critically endangered, there being only about 500 of them left in Morocco.
Oh, that’s if we (and they) haven’t blown away in the night, it’s blowing a hoolie here as they say in Stow and we are rocking all over the show!
