|Larger than life..." The rock of Gibralter"|
We motored past the township of Gibraltar and the airport runway which forms the border between Spain and Gibraltar and headed to the anchorage off the Spanish town of La Linea.
Just after getting the anchor down, the clouds rolled down from the peaks and the light drizzle turned to rain. Everyone ahead of us had said the the weather changes once you reach Gib .. and they were right !! We had swapped warm sunny skies for cool and cloudy, a little piece of England right here in the western med. After a comfortable night on the anchor we awoke to another cool overcast day. Donning our wet weather jackets we picked up the hook and motored over to the fuel dock on the Gibralter side. Right on queue the heavens opened just as we were about to tie up. After topping up the tanks with duty free diesel we headed into Queensway Quay Marina which we would call home for the next two weeks.
