    FISHING HIGH ON CLIFFS

    I saw quite many locals sitting on cliffs, high above the Atlantic Ocean, by the Hercules Cave and trying to catch any fish with a fishing rods, partly succesfully. One of them managed to catch maybe 10, medium size fish. Some locals were angling down on the rocks as well.

    Equipment: I saw loong fishing rods of locals.

    Swimming in the ocean

    LOCAL SWIMMER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ATLANTIC OCEAN

    I took a loop drive from Tangier to the Cape Spartel and the Hercules Caves. When I was walking on high cliffs of the Atlantic Ocean above the Hercules Caves, I surprisingly saw small, alone figure of a swimmer approx. 1 kilometer far in the ocean. I zoomed (12 x) and took a picture.

    A would-be suicide?, I thought. No, no, I got to know from local fishermen that a local, young guy used to swim kilometers each day. What for? Just to relax. Hmm... if you want to join him... I didn't want. Let say, the water was too cold for me.

    Equipment: Swimming suit or shorts. Warning: any nudity is strictly forbidden in Morocco.
