Morocco: Essaouira For A Day, part 2

Once we were done visiting the medina, it was time to see the blue fishing boats. I have seen photos of the boats online so much that I had high expectations. The boats were there alright, but I was a bit disappointed. The scene was not as magical as I dreamed it would be. That was alright, I have seen so many magical scenes in this country already.

The next stop we made was at the beach, just a stone's throw away from the medina. Essaouira is popular spot for kite surfing and windsurfing.

When we got back to the van, we asked the driver to give us a brief look at the city outside of the medina and the beach area, so he willingly drove around town. Nothing interested us so we decided to return to Marrakech; it was getting late anyway and it was a long drive back.
