14th Moulay

Trying and outrun the wind and rain we set forth further south. By the time we reached Moulay we seemed to have achieved just that! I was also praying for some waves, but we arrived the sun was near setting so it would have to wait till tomorrow.  The camp site was situated on the side of the lagoon that feed into the ocean.  The towns little harbor was just down the end of the road and its blue and red fishing boats were bobbing in the water.  It was all very picturesque and a great spot for the night.  We met our neighbors – 2 English couples and exchanged tales with them as the sun was going down. 

15th Drive from Moulay to El Jadida

No waves this morning so we again it was time to move further south following the Atlantic Coast.  Lots of crops mingled with dry rocky landscape.  No where seemed to be deserted as people, dogs or goats popped up as we drove along.  We saw some pottery shops and decided to stop at one as Kim wanted a tarjine pot.  She got a painted tarjine pot and a lovely hand painted plate both for 55 dirham – for this you would pay 320 dirham in the souqs so she got a bargain as she paid what the locals would have.   Maybe next time she will buy an unpainted tarjine and cook me up a storm – the painted ones are only for decoration.
