A storm approaches

Storms on our holiday are a bit of a bore, but they do produce some pretty spectacular skies.  This one was taken from Lindisfarne Island in April.

Bahia Palace, Marrakech

A couple of years ago we spent a wonderful long weekend discovering the delights of Marrakech.  Bahia Palace, with it’s exquisite architecture and decorations was an oasis of peace away from the madness of Jamaa El-Fnaa (which we loved, by the way). It is most definitely worth a visit. These are just a few examples of its gorgeousness!
