We had a really stormy night last night and the day did not get much better. Kim tried to get in a boxing session but everytime she started it started to rain! No surf as the waves were just mush. Mid afternoon we got a visit from Joe and Em who we had met in Marrakesh. They were staying at the other Atlantica Park – where nearly all 790 spots were occupied. No chance of us finding them up there! We agreed to meet tomorrow for a surf and the girls could hang out.
8th Atlantic Park
Perfect day today and the waves were good. I went surfing with Joe at Hotel Point. The waves were fast and hollow
Joe and I finally got out of the water at sundown and Kim was starving so we headed into Banana Village for Tarjine and cous cous. It was good but not as the one in Essouria.
9th Atlantic Park
Another great day of surfing with Joe at the same spot as yesterday
10th Atlantic Park
Joe and Em headed south today probably join them in a week as we just wanted to stay in one spot for a little while and also the surf looked good here so why leave?! I got a good surf out at Banana Point J
When I got back from surfing and Kim had been invited to join Martin and Carmel next door for drinks (they started at 12!) and a late lunch. No sooner had I arrived I had a beer waiting for me and a lovely spread too. The late afternoon drifted into the evening and we ended up at their friends Brendon and Pats who owned a camper mansion across the way from us.
11th Atltantic Park
Surfing and chores we the order of the day. Our travel and car insurance were both due to expire on the 19th January as originally we thought outhe UK trip we end then and we woudl fly to Africa. Not now as we were enjoying Scooby life too much. We extended both until mid April as we should be back in the UK by then.
12th Atlantic Park
I got a solid 4 hour surf today - my surfing fitness has improved dramatically as only a few weeks ago I could only last 1 to 1.5 hours in the water - pretty chuffed! Met a few Italian guys out in the surf who we bumped into later and found out their car had been broken into while they were out surfing - reminded us not to become to complacent! Kim has caught Joe's head cold and has been lying low for a few days - poor Kimmy!!!
