I feel in the mood for some more walking, so I head out along the coast to the west of Moulay Abdellah.  I follow a coastal road that winds along the coastline past little fishing hamlets and and fertile vegetable gardens.  Everything is green around... in fact, this looks like an entirely differently country compared to what I saw last summer... Lush wheatfields where once was a barren moonscape... It has the feel of an abundant, prosperous farm region--like France or Pennsylvania...However, I do remind myself that this has been an exceptionally wet year... Usually Morocco doesn't get so lucky.

A gang of children follow me along providing me with some entertainment--until they are driven off my serious looking passerbys...

It's getting late as I near Jorf Lasfar... I sure hope the town is worth the hike!  Then finally I see an enourmous port an industrial area not far off... but no town! 

But the hike is by no means in vain--as near the port there are some magnificent cliffs which are just begging to be used in my video clips... Intriguing layers of rock--a massive section of cliff that looks just poised to collapse into the sea... what looks like an enormous coral rock shoved underneath the cliff...

Yep, the hike to Jorf Lasfar was worth it...
