The Med at last!
The levanter eventually stopped and released us to enter the Mediterranean with a favourable Westerly breeze.
Exactly a year after leaving Troon we sailed into the Bay of Gibraltar . The Rock a dramatic milestone.
We are berthed at La Linea in Spain and walk daily across the runway to Gibraltar. You actually have to wait for the green man at the traffic lights if a plane is taking off!
The cable car soon had us at the top of the rock and we got our bearings. We watched the apes playing their tricks and the dozens of ships anchored below queuing to go through the straights. The wind got up so we had a hairy ride down the hairpin road in a minibus - more exciting than the cable car!
