Today we spent the day in Sidi Ifni with our German friends. First we went to the souk. (this is a market) It was massive. The souk had lots of people selling fruit and veges, clothes and plastic things. The fruit and veges were laid out on the ground and we took a plastic bowl and filled it with all the things we wanted. Then the stall holder would weigh it all, and tell us how much it cost.We bought eggplant, oranges, apples, pears, a pineapple, strawberries, carrots, avocado, and courgettes. Some of the stalls had live chickens, and turkeys, but we didn’t see any being killed. It was very interesting.
After lunch we went to the beach. This is the Atlantic Ocean. The waves were very big and there were surfers. We stood close to the waves and when they came close, we tried to outrun them. Genevieve got really wet!
When we were up above the beach, Daddy showed us where there was a rip in the water. It was a bit that had no waves. Daddy said that rips are dangerous and can take you out to sea.
That night we had an early Christmas dinner with all the friends we had made in the campground. Daddy did a BBQ and Mummy learnt to make proper pumpkin soup. We had olives and bread too. Then we has smores for pudding. It was amazing.
What a great Christmas blog, Eleanor! Looking at all that wonderful food makes me hungry! We also went to the beach on Christmas Day – at Corsair Bay. Clementine was a bit naughty splashing me but afterwards we swam out to the diving platform. It was a long way but we made it!
Now Grandma and I are back in Nelson. Tomorrow we are taking all the timber from the old pool deck at Endeavour St up to the lake – we are going to use it for a deck round the sleepout. I will show you in a few weeks!!
I’m looking forward to seeing you!
That sounds so wonderful Eleanor I think we should all have s’mores for Christmas pudding they are yummy x
It was strange having a BBQ in the sun for christmas. (Daddy says get used to it)
The market pictures are beautiful and colourful. You should make baba ganoush with the eggplant!!
Playing tag with the sea is also a good idea.
