After enjoying a week in La Linea and Gibraltar we sailed around The Rock into the Mediterranean Sea. On the East side it was fascinating to see the rain collection slopes for Gibraltar’s water system, 8,000,000 gallons stored in the rock! Also the new holiday village at the foot.
 
WE motor sailed yet again all the way. Got into the last space in the old marina in the centre of town. Bows to the quay with a stern line set holding us off. We bought diesel when we arrived so we could have a quick get away in the morning.
 
Olivia (Theo one of my sons’ gf) recommended a restaurant she had been to many times. It turned out to be by the converted fishing harbour. A great meal if a little quiet this time of year, was enjoyed. Thank you any more recommendations gratefully received. We strolled back along the front to find wifi and chat via Whatsapp to my family group. I hadn’t tried it before, but it is great as everyone can see what eachother is saying and comment, a little like being at home, all we need to do now is get Penny involved.
