Our ship arrived at Gibraltar on a gray day. We were lucky to have visited Gibraltar several years ago so I’m including some pictures from that trip when the weather was better!
Gibraltar is a little bit of England on the southern end of Andalusia, Spain.
The top of the Rock was in a fog this day but in October 2008 the weather was more cooperative. The clouds rolled off the mountain and we took the cable car up to the top.
Gibraltar is known for it’s population of semi-wild Barbary Macaques. They congregate on the top of the rock where tourists are warned not to get too close.
Even on that beautiful day the clouds rolled in.
Back down to town and a short hike to the southern end of Gibraltar takes you past the King Fahd Mosque.
This trip we visited the Botanic Garden. It’s a lovely little park built in levels on the side of the mountain.
There were still blooms in November…..and cats!
This mother and baby macaque came down to town and crossed the street right in front of us. We kept our distance, not wanting to irritate a mom!
We noticed this “American classic” diner but opted for a pub with wi-fi instead.
And so ends a day on the Rock of Gibraltar.
