The weather has been awful in Gibraltar for most of this past week with a very rough sea which forced those ships anchored off-shore to move farther out. The odd thing is that there was almost no wind here, so obviously somewhere else in the Med was getting a good blow. There was also some torrential rain, which the ladies at the bus stop assured me “non es normalo”. When the sunshine returned a couple of days ago we could see that there was snow on some of the Spanish hills much closer than the Sierra Nevada.
Yesterday’s visit to Europa Point was disappointing, apart from the bus ride which gave us a look over the western edge and the harbour to Algeciras, and the view over to North Africa.
Too many tatty breezeblock buildings labelled MOD property. No attempt to make the area attractive for tourists of whom there was a steady stream in sight-seeing minibuses.
