VIEW OF AGADIR FROM MY ROOFTOP

image

Well, to be accurate its from the rooftop two doors down.  I had the idea, took the steps upstairs to my terrace, put them on the ledge,  climbed to the top step……and bottled climbing over the parapet onto the roof!  Then I remembered my neighbours roof terrace.

The Mosque (pronounced mos-key) you see in the foreground was being built when I first arrived here to live.  One day walking to the shops I was horrified to see them painting the Minaret with one painter dangling down out of the top window, while another man inside held onto his ankles. 

I have a useless sense of direction, but I think thats looking south, the sea is across town to the right-hand side of the picture.

A friend found an old map of Agadir from 1978.  I think its fair to say that the whole picture would have been empty.  My, Agadir, how you’ve grown.

I am contributing to #sixwordsaturday pop over and have a look

A FAVOURITE PLACE

Agadir Beach has changed enormously in the years I’ve been visiting, it used to be all sand dunes and camels.  Its still beautiful, particularly at the southern end which is where this photo is, but its different.  Lots of cafes, restaurants, sunbeds and a beautiful long corniche (promenade to us Brits).

This is a post for #thegallery head over and take a look at others
