Life & Travels Afloat in our Moody

Morocco!

DSC01470After setting off, within a few hours we encountered a huge pod of dolphins, a great omen.

Africa is just over 200 miles from Portugal, but what a difference it makes. Arriving at Mohammedia, we entered a new world, not least starting with the bureaucracy of arriving by sea. However the people are so welcoming and friendly that it is borne with good humour.

After a couple of nights at anchor just outside the harbour, we moved on to El Jadida. Even more bureaucratic! But the town is a glorious assault on the senses. Crowds of people, pavements overflowing with food and goods, and very friendly people. It is a shame to have to move on, but we have to to get our sister and nephew to the airport on time later in the week.
