Gibraltar Part 2 of 3

We are traveling with our friends, Clarke and Brenda.  To read their version of this trip click here.

Dear Family and Friends,

We left Coin this morning and headed for Gibraltar.   About an hour out of Coin we stopped at a view point over looking this beautiful town.  These "white hillside towns" are common in southern Spain.

We arrived Gibraltar about noon. 

The town of Gibraltar is only on the land between the rock and the Mediterranean...which is not that much.  The town is pretty much tourist city.  They have duty free shopping so it is a very popular place to by tobacco products, alcohol, perfume, jewelry and electronics.  There is a long shopping street that is loaded with all types of stores and tons of shoppers.

Of course going to the top of the Rock of Gibraltar is the most important thing to do there.

Looking at the Mediterranean from the top.

Looking down on the airport.  Notice the strip that goes right across the runway.  That is a road.  There is a crossing arm that comes down when a plane is taking off or landing...much like a railroad crossing.  

This is the Atlantic ocean from the top of the rock.

 There are small apes that live on the rock.  I will share pictures in the next blog post.
