Essaouria, Morocco

...just returned from Morocco

We spent three wonderful days in Essaouria

The Medina Walls


Rough seas crashed against and went over the medina walls!

The small Fleet

The weather was hot and very windy.
We stayed at the  Riad le Grand Large in the Medina, excellent, definitely ticks all the boxes. 

Third floor of the Riad

From the third floor looking up to the terrace

Waiting for the weather

Although most of the fishing boats were unable to go out some fish was still landed

Gulls after scraps


Fresh fish on the quay

So we were able to have fresh sardines for lunch at our favorite restaurant Safran in the Old Grain Market
