Beachcombing

Beachcombing

Far in Morocco’s southern Atlantic coast, farther south than even Agadir, is the town of Sidi Ifni.  This seaside gem is known for its beaches, where horseback riding on the Moroccan sands is a popular activity for tourists. But that’s later in the day.  Early in the morning, before Sidi Ifni begins to stir, a man takes his donkey out to the shore to comb the sands for anything he can find washed up on the shore that might be of value: small fish like sardines, shellfish like shrimp, or fishing nets that can be repaired and resold.  He could trek all day, if he so chose; the beaches here are celebrated for their seemingly endless lengths.

Snapshot! is our Moroccan photo of the week. Each week we feature a new photograph illustrating the dramatic beauty, cultural diversity or traditional heritage of Morocco and her people.
