At Essaouira harbour, situated in southern Morocco on the Atlantic coast, seagulls are having an evening stroll and promenade along the quay, waiting for the fishing boats to return, so they can have a nice and fresh fish snack. The harbour can be frenetic with seagulls, and is a most extraordinary place to wander around at dusk or dawn to watch things going. Not only seagulls, but also the people of Essaouira go about their fishing business, making a living in harsh conditions, being at sea for often more then 24 hours.

Two men in a small fishing boat return home at Essaouira's port after a night of fishing at sea.
