Boiler Point Excursion.

This morning after breakfast I walked up the hill from the Taghazout village to the highway roundabout and caught the 33 bus which goes to Thamri. I got off at the end of Cap Ghir. I did not know there was a surfing spot there. It is called Boiler Point.

The tide was coming in fast so there were not many waves. When I came back later no-one was out because the waves were not even breaking any more. There were a heap of fishing boats out to sea.

And quite a few rock fishermen trying their luck. I only saw them catch one fish.

I took a photo of this bird but I have no idea what it is or where to start. Edit: Thanks to Gustav Erikson for the ID.

This is a bonus photo from yesterday afternoon, just above the village of Anchor Point. It was low tide at this stage.
