Yepeeee… they told me we’re leaving today!!

Finally that awful rain is no longer coming down and the muddy water of the wadis is slowly soaked up by the desert (wonder where it’s going do end up!)
Mum and Dad have discussed quite a lot about the road to take and decided to make me follow two Toyota (me doesn’t like Toyota!). We start with a bit of shopping, water, bread, veggies and then go on a pist to go around the “bridge” (which collapsed because of the flooding). After a good 15 km … back on tarmac, all dry and sunny sunny (me LOVES this). But – damn – getting wet again. Guess who’s the lucky winner? MEEEE (sgrunt). Oook, Dad gets us across the wadi, up on a side diversion and down behind it. And that’s all of the bad stuff for today. Lots of km ahead of us – after 2 days stuck at Foum Zguid my family just can’t wait being in Dakhla so today straight to Tan Tan Plage. We arrive before dusk, a camping on the beach, love the smell from the sea, and this chilly breeze. Yep – me LIKES that. Dad lets me stay and takes Mum for dinner. Fried fish and cookiez (yummy). But now time to sleep. I’m a bit tired and tomorrow back on the road again. Tarfaya – here we come!

Like the desert needs the rain

Fine enough – they fooled me. Must be like that.
“No worries, Pat. Soon we’re done with the rain. We take you to the South, in the desert, where your wheels can stay dry as long as you want!”. They said.
So why is it raining like hell since since yesterday? And what’s this? Rivers that cut off the road? In the desert????? Not to mention the thunderstorm we had tonight. BBBBRRRRRR. So we have to stay, right in the middle of nowhere, three roads out of three blocked by flooded wadi…
Ehm… hallo…. Sure you didn’t take the wrong turn again???!!!!
