"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever." Jacques Yves Cousteau
The sea does have a magnetic pull for us,
and picturesque Essaouira…
provided a chilled out escape from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech.
Once a fortified city…
surrounded by walls,
its has cast movie makers under its spell.
The whitewashed buildings with blue shutters remind some visitors of France
which makes perfect sense when you find out the city was designed by a Frenchman.
Even the market is laid back…
except for the chicken man who seemed to be camera shy.
So there you have it.
The sea and shopping...
goats in trees…
what's not to love.
Essaouira is not to be missed...
and we can't thank Abdul enough
for sharing his country with us.
