Went ashore on the first skiff run this morning and headed out to the Southern end of Gibraltar to Europa point. Along the way I stopped to look at the Victorian 100 ton gun and Rosia Bay where the Victory was docked after Trafalgar.
John and I walked along the shore road to Europa Point and nearly got blown off the rock by the very strong West wind that has been blowing force 5 all morning.
There is a wrecked ship right below the lighthouse that doesn’t look very old. The power of the sea is evident in te ripped plating and smashed hull. The ship split in half!
The weather has changed, it’s now cloudy and the wind has apparently dropped a bit. Have to go buy a belt and some other miscellaneous stuff and then have a bite of supper before heading back to the ship.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, will be moving the ship to a fuel dock to get our tanks topped up and then we are supposed to sail for Morocco.
Maybe more and some pictures later.
Thanks for reading.
P.S. Pictures are Here!
