We were bussed out of Agadir, where there is a lot of building and development going on, both houses, apartments and roads, up to the hills above, a bit further than planned because of road works taking place on our route. There roads were muddy because of the deluge of yesterday, so today was going to be a day of careful riding trying to avoid the puddles, mud, gravel and rocks which have been brought on to the road by the water.
Riding was mostly uphill, following a valley and its river, running faster than it would usually be at this time of the year because of the rain from yesterday. The valley gorge cut a steep gash through the mountains.
The storm was still having and effect, with wind at the higher elevations, and it became quite chilly at times. Our destination was Immouzer high up in the hills, to a pleasant hotel which probably needed a bit of TLC, but certainly would have been a lovely spot on a balmy day. Today, however, it was a distinctly chilly, and the wood fires were lit in the entrance and the dining room. There was, however, lashings of hot water, which has not always been the case at some of our overnight stays up in the mountains.
