|A sneaky shot of|
locals buying their supplies
|Sidi Ifnid souk, biggest |
cauliflowers we've ever seen!
The souk was great, loads and loads of fresh vegetables and fruit, herbs and spices. There was a little concrete square of tiny retail outlets where fresh fish, meat and chickens were sold. I bought some beef and had it minced and two chickens on different days, one of which I took the meat off raw and the other I roasted whole and then froze the cooked meat.
|Difficult to resist the urge to say, |
"Shouldn't you be in school?"
Oh, this was made possible by us buying and fitting a Moroccan gas cylinder while in Sidi Ifni, one of our two British cylinders became empty so we decided to be safe we should buy another cylinder. Up to now I have been using the gas sparingly, not using the oven but as we now have plenty and will not run out, the cooking can be a little more adventurous, even made a loaf today!
We did have an afternoon out in the MH from Sidi Ifni, we read about a beach 10k further north that was worth a visit so we set off in the afternoon in the hope of some good sunset pics. Dogs had a very enjoyable time as ever but had a bit of a fight over a stone they both wanted. First time they've ever fallen out really, I have to admit it was Belle's fault! She was relentlessly bullying Dash who was having a good time digging up his stone and he got fed up and had a go at her. Nigel had to pull them apart, full on teeth gnashing and growling!
|Legzira Plage, 10k North of Sidi|
|Well worth waiting on the beach for sunset!|
The weather at Sidi Ifni was not as good as in recent weeks, it even had the temerity to rain the first day we were there! It was a bit cooler too with some clouds and quite windy. With the weather forecast promising more sunshine at the weekend, we set off for a wild campsite at Plage Blanche, another 150k down the coast.
|Black top, just on and on and on!|
The campsite guidebook says that although there are no facilities here, children bring bread in the morning. I mentioned this to some people who were parked next to us before we left the last place and are on their 12th motorhome trip here. They said the loaves were like cartwheels, hard enough to drive on! We tried one here the first day....our informants were right, hence the home made loaf today!
|Hmm, bit of a bad hair day, methinks!|
We were going to just have two nights here but as the weather wasn't brilliant and tomorrow's forecast was better and also as we still had enough water left, we decided to have a third night. It's been much warmer today, with just a slight breeze so it's been a very pleasant sitting outside reading day! Nigel had a brief recce on his bike but was bored so he came back after half an hour, I walked the dogs but avoided the beach today.
|We're up there somewhere.....|
|Oh yes, there we are, fifth from the right.|
This is the lagoon we had to wade
across to get to the beach
There is no internet access here, the dongle doesn't work but my phone has a very patchy signal, enough to establish that there is snow in abundance in the UK and especially in Bolton. Hopefully we'll be able to catch up with news from home at out next campsite. We are heading back to Tiznit tomorrow and then to Tafraoute for a week or so.
