Moroccan Medley

We had a family trip to Marrakech, Morocco during the recent school break, and by way of a taster, here is a collaged selection of the many photographs taken while we were there. It was very beautiful, very different, very exotic, inspiring and thought-provoking. Unfortunately, we brought home the souvenir no-one wants: travellers' tummy, or whatever you like to call it. The good thing about it is that I lost a stone in weight! The bad thing is that it's triggered the post-viral syndrome big time, so I'm finding it very difficult to do more that sleep or slump on the sofa. And Christmas is coming! Nevertheless, it was an amazing visit and I daresay I'll gradually catch up with everything, including blogging about it. At least it's good hibernation weather, all dark, dank and damp.

Autumn Sunset

Apart from the arboreal splendour, there can be spectacularly colourful sunsets at this time of year, as demonstrated in the collection of images above. I love these fiery skies.

Autumn Leaves

A heads-up from my sick-bed. These colourful leaves prove a valued distraction but the coming windy weather will probably put paid to this wonderful display until next year. Not a good year for health in our house at all.
