Day 4 – Agadir to Dakhla, Western Sahara

Day 4 and we depart Agadir Morocco into clear blue skies. We expect that for the rest of the trip I hope. 2 hrs down the coast into the Western Sahara. We passed over a little oasis and a huge flock of pink Flamingos but unfortunately I could not get my camera on in time. It’s really cool to see them from a few hundred feet above just like on television but live. Sure we’ll see more. A quick fuel stop in El Aaiun before we continue on to Dakhla for the night. Dakhla is in a very remote place but is famous for kite surfing. The bay that we passed over on our approach into town had about a dozen people kite-surfing. We understood why when we landed. A steady 15 knot wind from the north. Perfect for kite-surfing and wind-surfing but not really that good for doing helicopter maintenance but that’s part of the adventure for sure. Our Captain has pre-booked all of our hotels and so far he gets a gold star. Tonight’s is on the beach in Dakhla. Fabulous. Tomorrow on to Dakar Senegal. Always wanted to go there. Enjoy the pictures.
