Today, after marine biology, we went to shore in Essaouira. We split off into smaller groups to explore. Everyone did a lot of shopping. People bought everything from jewelry to bongo drums to traditional Moroccan clothing. It was a cultural experience walking through the markets. We saw a table full of chopped off goat heads. Essaouira has two main beaches, one of which had camel rides available. Some people went to see some ruins that were said to have inspired Jimi Hendrix’s song “Castle Made of Sand.” After we all got back to the boat we left for Agadir with the engine off and making way at about eight knots.
