Essaouira day 5 – Thursday
After breakfast, we walked down to the harbor to sketch the boats. They were so blue, and I was so intent on my sketching that I nearly missed a wagon full of sharks being unloaded!
Lunch today was at Taros, a rooftop restaurant. We noticed a lady eating sea urchins, they come by the dozen, like clams, and apparently are quite delicious. No thank you, I’d rather have my goat cheese and beet roots.
After lunch, to the fort – this time going inside and climbing up to the top for views of the local coast.
After that, the Essaouira fish market, which was very busy. Similar to the dogs at the meat market, there were many cats and kittens hanging around for scraps.
I did several sketches at the fish market, but will add color and post them later.
