Getting to the Sahara

From Lisbon my son Jonathan and I headed south to Faro-- then east to Andalucia. Our plan was to explore southern Portugal and Spain and return to Lisbon. But when you're free, hidden agendas arise to the fore and take hold. We were so close to Morocco-- and the Sahara-- I could not dismiss the possibility. Just once, to feel the silky warm sand of the huge seabed underfoot-- to lie in the dunes under starlight, just once, would be a thrill. And that's what we did. When you're pulled toward a dream a certain inevitabiity sets in-- and an 'unplanned' sidetrip becomes a cherished memory.
