into the mountains
Entirely according to tradition, we go into the mountains on the last workshop day.
Before we cross the Ourika river, we first pay a visit to the Saffron Valley. Which, as we know before we arrive, is only blooming in the fall.
It does not make the visit less special, because the vegetable- and herb gardens are gorgeous, with a breathtaking view of the mountains.
We pick some nice 'green memories' for our herbarium, drink home-made lemonade and get in our minibus for the last few miles.
On arrival at our final destination, we have a delicious lunch, overlooking the red valley of Kasbah Bab Ourika.
The rest of the tropical day, we spend in and around the pool and everyone is loving it. Plenty to enjoy at this magical place!
Ps: Ank's 5 months old puppy Flip has accompanied us on all workshop days (cool crochet and green garden!). He is the coolest, easiest, funniest and sweetest dog. Flip has seen more in his young puppy life than many other dogs throughout their whole life.
