Let me know what you think. I think the background might be a little too busy. But I'm done playing around with it for today.
On Saturday morning, my friend Jenny and I went to the beach to do some exploring. It was low tide, so we were able to climb on the rocks along shore that were engulfed in the ocean the previous day. I love seeing the fishermen out and about in the mornings. It's just sooo peaceful, maybe serene. I have yet to actually see anyone catch anything, but their baskets are always full. They do this at Jack Beach in Dar bouza as well. So cool.
We loaded back up in the vehicles and made a short drive to the city of Safi, known for its beautiful pottery. (See pictures off to the side.) We went into the small pottery market and I was mesmirized by the colors and designs. You'd expect to pay hundreds of dollars for stuff like this in the states. I bought a huge platter for 20dh. Which is a little over $2. Crazy.
The rest of the day was spent back at Oualidia where we walked up to the lagoon area that Oualidia is known for. A hole was blasted through the rocks out in the ocean, allowing a tidal lagoon to form inside. Beautiful as well. We saw an amazing sunset and again relaxed with great food and outstanding company.
My first trip outside of Casablanca showed me what a beautiful country Morocco really is. I can't wait to take in more of it throughout the next two years...
