Bonjour, from Agadir! After what seemed a short hop from Mohammedia, we’re enjoying this little stopover very much. The girls instantly spotted a lovely swimming pool a minutes walk from our marina berth and Susie especially liked the look of the row of designer shops!
On the way here we passed two other harbours,
Checking in was very straightforward with a visit from the
very friendly officials from Port Health, Customs and Immigration, after which
we headed for the pool for a cooling dip in the very lovely swimming pool the
girls spotted earlier. After that the girls did the laundry, Ross went
exploring the town and I checked the latest online forecast and a little
research into harbours in the Canary Islands etc. The usual stop there is Las
Palmas, the yachtie capital and useful place for boat related resources but at
this time of year it will be a ‘no go’ area due to the ‘Atlantic
Rally Challenge’ or ‘ARC’ participants who will have
completely taken the place over and caused prices of everything to be inflated
out of all proportion. No, we must go elsewhere! So we’re contemplating
We had a foray around the pleasant beach seafront last evening, this place is more ‘touristy’ than Mohammedia, we plan on staying until at least tomorrow and Ross and myself are going to try to bus it to Essouira while Martin and Louise checkout a local market.
