2 clueless day skippers with Patience

DAY 82 - The Rock

04 September 2015
We are having a fab time in Gibralta , although technically we are not actually moored in Gib, we are in La Linea in Spain just over the other side of the border, across the airport runway, a short walk away.

We arrived on Tuesday and went into Gib to meet the apes on Wednesday. The challenge of walking up the side of the rock was too much because of the heat so we went up in the cable car
( sorry Wendy Darling)! We didn't know what to expect so we left the cable car at the top and headed up a concrete spiral staircase only to be greeted by 2 apes at the top grooming each other.After the initial shock and realising that they weren't interested in challenging anyone who dared to pass we carried on exploring the top of the rock and met loads. Mummy's and babies, ( so so cute) grumpy looking male adults and cheeky teenagers. One of the teenagers fancied my hair clip so jumped on my shoulder and tried his best to release it from my hair, but I was too quick and after hanging around on me for a bit , he reluctantly left empty handed.

Others had more luck , stealing whole packets of biscuits and sweets from people's shopping bags , one even managed to get a can of coke and a bag of M&S Percy Pigs- hilarious !

We have a man coming to look at sail ( to make boom sit higher,as I am afraid that one day it will thwack Ricky on the head ) but the main reason we are staying put a while is because we have weekend passes to the Gibraltar music festival tomorrow and Sunday - whoo hoo . Yes we are actually going to rock with the youngsters.Line up includes Duran Duran, Madness, Keiser Chiefs, Kings of Leon, Ella Henderson, and loads more.We're very very excited as you can imagine. Only hope my Miss Marple sun hat keeps me cool even if I don't look cool. You never know if I'm the oldest in the audience,one of the bouncers may feel sorry for me and invite me back stage to cool off .

Signing off now to paint a fake tattoo daisy chain around my ankle and re- pierce Ricky's ear.

Rock Chic xx

Sad times as evidence is piling up on our shores confirming that we are not looking after our planet.
