Morocco - last trip of 2010 - first trip of 2011
The Cascades of Immouzzer - although at the time we visited there was not a great deal of water coming over the top.

In the Paradise Valley with the Oasis in the background - here we found a photo opportunity on the top of a shop.

One of many good meals in the local restaurants of Agadir on the front.

The beach at Agadir - just great for topping up the tan - and the guys who sorted out the wind breaks etc were just great.

In central Agadir we found there was a local Moroccan pop star giving a free concert - everybody enjoyed the evening.
