tourist bit, complete with camera. It felt strange to be in a bustling
city, and more than once we realised the middle of a road is not a good
place to stop!
With only the afternoon to spend there, we couldn't do it justice, but
enjoyed the Cathedral, which is the third largest in the world, after St.
Peter's and St.Paul's, and the Bullring - and a rather leisurely lunch at
a pavement cafe!
Our plan to leave Rota today (Tuesday) and make directly for Gibraltar was
scuppered by a change in the wind which decided it would blow from the
East through the Straits, exactly the way we would be heading! So it
looks like we will have to stop at Barbate after all and wait for the wind
So tomorrow we are off to Barbate. The forecast is for the wind to come
back to the West on Thursday so hopefully we will press on to Gibraltar
