Gibraltar

We have been in Gibraltar for 5 days now but have only just been able to explore as we had to be in the boat to attend to the various repairs, including having the throttle lever replaced as it was about to seize and was affecting the engine performance.

Lee and Jase arrived on Friday evening so we waited until we saw the plane land as the runway is next to the marina and then sauntered round to the airport to meet them.

Today we decided to be tourists and see The Rock so we took the cable car up to the top and saw the apes and then walked back down via St Michaels’ Cave (an amazing collection of stalactites and stalagmites), the Siege Tunnels dating back to the 18th century and a Moorish Castle. It was extremely hot today so a refreshing beer back on the boat was very welcome!

       

Tomorrow will be a lazy day getting the boat ready for our long sail to the Balearics on Monday.

    Glad you enjoyed Gibraltar. I didnt like it much there. We got our car towed away and had to spend 100€ to get it back and it wasnt the apes either!!!
