On our last morning we explored the local village - Taghazout - as we hadn't really seen it as we'd just been in the sea the whole time. We stopped at a few shops and I was very pleased to spot this blanket! It reminded me of a vintage deckchair!
It was hanging on the wall at the back of the shop. When I asked the guy how much it was, he replied ' This is old one' and looked at me in disbelief. He tried to show me the more modern ones that were for sale but nothing compared with this one. Sure it was frayed, dusty and ragged at the edges but so much nicer than the other ones. He eventually took it off the wall and I bought it (much cheaper than the other ones too!) . It will now be a very treasured beach rug that I look forward to using every summer!
It was nice to come home and see the girls again although my mum who had been looking after them was keen to get home too! I think we'll be doing a few more surfing trips in 2011 but next time as a family!
Finally I would like to wish a BIG HAPPY CHRISTMAS to everyone. Hope it's a good one! xx
