We took out breakfast at a local café with a nice view of the water. Then we started on our 342 KM day north to Essouria.
From here our day was north and along the ocean for the most part. When we left the sea and went up in the hills it suddenly looked like we were back in Spain. We did get to see the famous Moroccan goats that climb trees to eat the foliage.
Arriving in Essouria we had a nice place booked just outside the medina and 1 block from the beach.
This is a very nice town with a more laid-back feel than Fes or Marrakesh.
Three days of down time we spent relaxing, walking on the beach, and enjoying the local atmosphere.
