ESSAOUIRA
The Harbour

Essaouira, Morocco

Misty and mystical. Or sparkling with colours and shapes. Essaouira is beautiful seen from the harbour, white and with rare Norfolk Island pines. The harbour is a good place to hang around too. The Moroccan fishermen put a lot of pride and quite a number of hours in decorating their boats. Many boats are built for heavy seas, while the ones seen to the right here seldom go far offshore.
