A DAY ON THE ROCK

GPS 36.1580758 -5.3390893

Our long winding road yesterday

Parked up on the prom on The Spanish side of the border at La Linea de la Concepcion John got chatting with a chap who was parked in a free to park place next to the €5 to park place He thought it would suit our needs until an ENGLISH guy with a big tatty camper said we were to close to him .. invading his space .. some of these grumpy old men think they own the place as they go to “Winter” there every year .Well we don’t care Stuff him and off we toddle to the pay for site next door on the football club carpark and pay our €5 .. good site over looking the Med .. lots of rolling waves and The Cloud above the Rock rolls as well it’s called Lavante

Very interesting weather concept .. well I think so

After last night libations and face book chats with Family ..A posting of photos of the party of two went Viral

The Driver with cheese n red wine
The Cook getting the giggles

In the morning we walked to the border ..Show passports and across we went .. Driving on the UK side of the road and telephone boxes J saw a red post box as well .. pure tourism but it has been said the Gibraltans are more British than us ..

First stop was Morrison’s for a big breakfast I know we are sado’s but hey ho .. when in Morrison’s have a breakfast

FULL ENGLISH WITH MUG OF BLACK COFFEE

Back on the bus .. Did I say The buses are London red .Again tourist Got off at the cable car stop .. small queue so not to bad or long a wait .. £28 was paid by The Driver (senior rate) a saving of £2 ..then up n up n up

To be greeted on the top by a Barbary Ape

Very well behaved Ape

The Rock seemed very built up looking over to the Mediterranean side Morocco could be seen in the hazy distance with ferries coming and going ..and down again to a massive queues of people waiting in line to go up .. we chose the right time .. by luck not management.A walk down Main Street ..popped into M&S for a cotton tee shirt ..Main Street was a hive of activity ..if our main shopping streets were as busy.. our towns would still be alive ..

Back to Morrison’s to get shopping to carry across the border .. Now on a wild camping spot for the night west of Tarifa

Looks like it’s been used for land yachting with a track laid out in the sandy dirt.. Lots of kite surfers out over the road on miles of golden sand .. Tomorrow off to Cádiz

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
