Sunday 21st March 2010

We set off from the boat at 8.00am in pouring rain and heavy mist but the weather improves and we arrive in Gibraltar some 670 miles away at 6.30pm. No problem. Apart form almost running out of petrol at one point (one litre left according to complex mathematical calculations).

When we arrive, the sun is shining and it is good to be back

Monday 22nd March 2010

Today is the Spring Fertility Ceremony here in Gibraltar - girls looking for a mate stand naked in shop windows

Tuesday 23rd March 2010

It is still pretty chilly as we wait for the number 3 bus to take us back home. There is a constant succession of buzz-bikes with the occasional real motor bike going past ...

... and the occasional interesting face

Wednesday 24th March 2010

It is still cold and misty here in Gibraltar - not as cold and misty as Manchester, however.

Thursday 25th March 2010

In the morning we are woken at the crack of dawn by the window cleaner. Watching him clean our windows for four hours is seriously exhausting and we set off for Morrisons car wash to recover.

Friday 26th March 2010

Yet again we set off for Morrisons but on our return we are walking past the Rock Hotel when there is a loud bang and water splaches all over us causing us severe shock and trauma. We rapidly deduce (from the remains of a red balloon) that somebody has thrown a balloon full of water at us from the top of the Rock Hotel. Naturally we whip out our cameras and take photos of the alleged perps as well as sending off the remains of the balloon for DNA analysis and fingerprints. We then go and lodge a formal complaint at reception and contact our lawyers - should be good for about 100,000 or so, I would have thought. See you in court smart arses.

Saturday 27th March 2010

We set off for town at some ludicrously early hour because the beacon Press closes at 1.30pm and I want a notebook. As it happens, we buy two from a newsagents. On the way we erncounter a band of redcoats who have arrived about 200 years too late.

In the harbour near Ocean Village is a big barge or possibly dredger called "Isaac 1874" that has no references on the web. It will have now.
