    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!

    Just added a few more pictures to the slide show of Tinerhir of the campsite and views over the town from the veranda of the café on the campsite.

    Next day still with a very bright blue sky, but another very low temperature last night.

    So we decided even though we are possibly ‘enjoying’ either a bad case of influenza or bronchitis to go for some exercise and a walk over to and around the old village, crossing the Hajaj river which had over 3ft high water flowing down it in 2014.

    We then pass the Amridil Kasbah which appeared on the reverse side of the old 50Dirham Banknote, and continue into the village.

    Nearly forgot to mention the 'Vegetation' which is a field of Bean Plants!!

    Then on our way back we see the ladies out at a fresh water outlet doing their laundry.

    Sid Ifni: The campsite for our stay. Local ladies gathering Mussels from the beach. We find a small Octopus under a rock which we put back over the Octopus. Surfing & Fishing. The Sunday Market and shelling the fresh Peas after buying them.

    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!

    Pulling out of Foum Zguid and heading to a place called Tazenakht which was a new place for an overnight halt.

    The scenery once again was breath taking as we traveled along, then we see the fresh water well and pump with the Mug to get a drink while the little bird just took it out of the pump pipe!

    Coming into Tazenakht we see the hand woven Berber Carpets and Rugs for sale.

    With our place to stay outside the Police Station then a walk into the town where we see 3 JCB’s For Hire, and 20 minutes later one had gone!

    The Atlas Mountains ‘Snow Capped’ and the Ford Transit having some ‘roadside repairs’ carried out!

    Set off for a look around Erfoud today which is a town that seems to ‘specialise’ in ‘Desert Fossils’ except a large percentage do not come from the Desert as they are ‘hand made’ by men working in small enclosures in what looks like a ‘shanty town’ as you will see in the pictures with the red and white pedestrian barrier in front.

    Then the man who was ‘cleaning up’ in his yard another manufactured fossil.

    Inside the Fruit & Vegetable market.

    Loved the army truck, just right for ‘Desert Adventures’ while the Nissan has a small flock of Sheep travelling ‘Upper Deck’!

    Nice looking Hotel front but did not go inside to see what that was like.

    Then an interesting side street.
