After a few nights wild camping in the Middle Atlas mountains, we had our sights set on some more wild camping but this time lakeside.

Made it down a dirt road to our boondocking spot. Kids immediately got to work on collecting wood.

Supposed to be for a campfire but I guess these sticks can be multi-purpose.

This is not from a stick accident but from the dry air.

It was actually way too cold for them all so this didn’t last too long.

But the kids did last longer than Dan.

Remnants of a drunk guy trying to sell us honey. He said he drank all day with the 4L French race car drivers.

The shepherd let us pick up a baby goat. It couldn’t or didn’t want to walk so he kept picking him up as the adults grazed.
