    Default Winter in Morocco in Pictures only 2017/18

    Return to Morocco 2017/18

    Here are the Links to the start of our return again to Morocco over the 2017/18 ‘Winter’ period.

    I have once again set them up as a Photobucket Slide Show which again I don’t think will be shown in their numerical order as Photobucket have still not resolved the issues with presenting a slide show!

    While I have tried to obtain different pictures this time. As I am trying to enjoy this visit and make it a vacation, then once again there are NO words with the pictures as I was spending a considerable amount of time in writing the text and building the file that was subsequently uploaded.

    BUT…….

    We hope you enjoy them.

    On our way to Morocco and while in Spain we took a day out to visit ‘The Rock’ of Gibraltar and we have to admit that our time there was not enough, so hopefully we will go back, but not on the way back to the UK.

    Across on the Algeciras to Tanger Med Ferry then through Moroccan Border Control where we once again have a difficult time explaining to the Customs Officer that the UK only have 1 registration number for both a car and caravan, while they expect to see different registrations for the car & caravan like the rest of Europe.

    As we then get clear and head down to the old Portuguese city of El-Jadida.

    Next stop was another old Portuguese city of Essouaria.

    Our next stop was the campsite at Wassay Beach which to be totally honest has not even been maintained in its facilities, but we did get a couple of very nice Sunsets before we hitched up again and moved on.

    Where our next stop was Tiznit.

    We will be off again from Tiznit and I will hopefully be adding to this as we continue our tour/trip.

    A day trip out to a town called Mirleft which has an old French Fort from 1935 of which the Admin and Captains Office/Quarters are now a Hotel while the Fort at the top of the hill continues to fall apart!

    The question is how many pounds of mussels did you get? Or did you go picking on your own?

    We went picking on our own and after a short time we filled a string bag, then brought them back to the campsite and washed them what we thought was thoroughly on the outside before cooking.

    However after cooking and 3 more washed in clean water we still found a few had quite a bit of sand inside, not quite sure why, unless it was the time that we collected them and the state of the tide.

    BUT........

    Will try again as they were still very nice and tasty!

    Final few pictures of Sid Ifni before we pack up and head off to our next stop.

    The Full Moon as it rose up on New Year’s Day Evening. 3 more pictures from around the town on January 2nd 2018 and on the day we left we were treated to this rather nice Sunrise before we pulled out of the campsite.

    Campsite, Dromedary’s in the surrounding land, Sunset, The City, The little wood workshop full of sawdust! A mural on a school wall and a small picture in a garage.

    After 2 days of nearly continuous rain we are now trying to dry out before moving on again!

    Coming out of Guelmim our next town and campsite was going to be in the town of Bouzikarne except the campsite which was a new one for us is around 1.5 miles outside the town with some nice landscape views when you got there.

    Just added 3 pictures to the Bouzikarne slide show as I didn’t realise that some pictures were being taken of the Solar Power Project that the campsite owner was putting in place and seeking help in achieving.

    So I spent a few hours marking out the concrete base ‘track’ and then with the other guys cutting the shallow trench for the concrete to be added so the Solar Array can be easily turned to follow the Sun!
