    Our first morning after we get back to Skoura with a wonderful bright blue sky, a frozen over car after a hard frost and a really nice view along the snow covered mountains from the campsite.

    Next day still with a very bright blue sky, but another very low temperature last night.

    So we decided even though we are possibly ‘enjoying’ either a bad case of influenza or bronchitis to go for some exercise and a walk over to and around the old village, crossing the Hajaj river which had over 3ft high water flowing down it in 2014.

    We then pass the Amridil Kasbah which appeared on the reverse side of the old 50Dirham Banknote, and continue into the village.

    Nearly forgot to mention the 'Vegetation' which is a field of Bean Plants!!

    Then on our way back we see the ladies out at a fresh water outlet doing their laundry.

    Time to move on even if we both do not feel 100%.

    The trip was from Skoura to an Autoroute Service Area north of Marrakech going via the Tiz-N-Tichka Mountain Pass over the lower Atlas Mountains, but as we have so many pictures for the full journey they have been made into 3 stages…….

    Here is the first which was Skoura to the Snow Barrier at the start of the Tiz-N-Tichka Pass, which took us through Ouarzazate and passed the old film studios which have not made any films in a long time but still get a lot of tourists…..

    The second set of pictures are for the Tiz-N-Tichka Pass itself as once again the scenery was fantastic but impassable a number of days ago when it was under over 2 meters of SNOW in places.

    Grey muddy large puddles you had no choice but to go through!

    A Truck whose tractor unit’s nearside wheels were buried in ruts halfway up the wheels, that you had to get around!
    (NO Breakdown/Recovery Assistance up here!

    Roadworks a plenty with deviations in the road at each one, and nowhere to turn around if you didn’t want to continue on!

    The flock of sheep looking for food on the snowy hillside with their shepherd.

    Loverly experience, especially when you ended up on the other side with a filthy outfit!

    The third and final set of pictures for this part.

    Takes us from the Snow Barrier Gate on the Marrakech side of the Tiz-N-Tichka, down the mountain with the spectacular scenery and the wet dirty roads, to the traffic jams of going around Marrakech, then onto the A3 Toll Road North towards Casablanca/Rabat and our overnight halt at the service area with a not bad sunset!

    Rather a long day and completely wiped out and in bed by 19:30hrs!

    The run to Kenitra and a rest is tomorrow.

    Unfortunately this sickness that has returned did not make for a decent trip to Kenitra. It was a case of get there while trying not to have a very severe bout of coughing which we just about managed, and then try to get some rest before the last leg from here to the port of Tanger Med and the ferry back to Spain.

    Being motorway back to Tanger Med there was really nothing of interest that has not already been photographed, but as we came down the final hill had a decent view of the port in front.

    Then as we got there we saw all these Renault ‘Rally Cars’ coming out of the port, going through immigration & customs and still when we eventually got down on the dockside, coming off our ferry which was late in setting off back to Spain by over 3 hours, as one of those hours was spent queuing to pass through the 1 and only X-Ray Machine which scans every vehicle before they are allowed onto the dockside for any 'Foreign Stowaways'!

    Still………That’s it………Morocco Tour is complete.

    Hope you enjoyed it.
