Yes Val she made it....."Fortunately" Jane is used to travelling. So she caught a cab to Tarifa. "Unfortunately" its still blowing old boots.... so she had to experience the scarey blasts of the ferry every 30 minutes or so. Friendly Spanish chaps in a Westerly next door.
Sunday 1st August
Still blowing so we explored the ramparts of Tarifa battlements, had a leisurely lunch, got sand blasted on the beach for about five minutes. Paddled in the Atlantic, then swam in the Med
Monday 2nd Aug
Left twirly. Wind had dropped so lovely sail. More dolphins. Dodging the container ships in Gibraltar Bay. What would we do without AIS. Arrived in Gib before midday in Marina Bay Marina, right next to the runway. Had some well deserved poo and siesta. Explored Morrisons.... OMG Id forgotten all the British things I've missed. Out for dins... Still v hot.
Tuesday 3rd Aug
Top tips from Jane...Last of the big spenders. Bought the whole of Morrisons. Cruise liner in and bomb scare on the runway made getting back tortuous... Cable car up to the Rock with the obligatory ape and view gaping. Spectacular.... Met two more cats on our pontoon (on leads...how posh)
