A Mud Lark in Oualidia

Yesterday, we celebrated my mum`s big `0` birthday by hopping in the car and traveling south for an hour to the pretty coastal town of Oualidia, which I blogged about here in March.  It had a very different feel to it yesterday with the lovely sandy beach and lagoon crowded with Moroccans enjoying their summer holidays together now that the Baccalaureat results are out and before the onset of Ramadan in a couple of weeks time.
To me,the beach had a feel of yesteryear about it with the small pleasure boats and kids mucking about in pedaloes, and so I edited the photos by applying a 1960s effect to them.

There was the sand boy - as happy as...or a mud lark...

..the birthday girl enjoying her moules...
...and me playing at being incognito


Hope you had a great weekend whatever you were up to!

oh how I love that first shot of the umbrellas. The processing to make them look retro is very effective, too.I feel like a kid again (ha, ha!). You all look great in the photos. You mum looks like she had a nice day!
