Essouira to Sidi Ifni


Over the past fifteen years we have travelled through most of Morocco, but had never been very far south on the Atlantic coast.


These are some of the pictures taken on the coast road. 


A quite plain little village.


Cactus and rolling hills --and very little traffic.


Another small village


palm trees and reeds and the sea in the distance......


Ah, a beach at last!



Then finally Sidi Ifni, a Spanish colonial outpost only returned to Morocco in 1969, with rather splendid art deco buildings. Julia, more about Ifni  here  (the Morocco blog).


The splendid town Hall.

That blue you see everywhere is just the absolutely right colour for the place isn't it?

It's that blue again on the town hall! What a beautiful place. Great roads too....clear and flat. Wonderful evocative images as ever.
