You would have thought we would have learned by now, but no - off we go to see the Classic Vehicle on Display. I thought
that was just typical Gibraltarian illiteracy but maybe there was just one vehicle and we missed it? Anyway, as with the
previous two events at Ocean Village, there was no sign of anything happening.
Next week, no doubt, will see us trotting off to see the Invisible Man at Ocean Village. Not to mention the convocation of ghosts, spirits and poltergeists. And of course, the association of fairies, elves and gnomes. Also to be held at Ocean Village.
Just after I recommend it, Brunos appears to have stopped trading. Meanwhile, White Star, is available at about half of last year's asking price of 1,400,000 euros. This is a really magnificent 76 foot boat that will make you the envy of all your friends - worth buying just to annoy people.
We set off on the number 4 bus to collect seashells by the seashore at the Caletta Hotel. Unfortunately, the tide is in
and there are no shells apparent. On the way back our ears are blasted by a lady, who, thank God, gets off after a couple
of stops. My ears are still ringing when we get home.
In the evening my girlfriend does a hair commercial on the balcony
I drop the girls at Primark and go for a drive. When we get back I am amazed by how much you can get for so little at Primark. Truly, a wondrous shop.
We decide to go to our new favourite restaurant on the beach at La Linea but they are out of Bacardi and also out of
Sardines. Accordingly, we set off to walk down to La Marina which is a very posh place just down the beach. This takes
forever and when we measure it later it turns out to be almost a mile - phew. They don't have Sardines either.
They do have oodles of poshness, however, but the food is nothing special. The bread is stale and undercooked - an unforgiveable crime.
Today is National Day and everybody is celebrating, including us. There is a band ...
... and lots of pretty girls.
In the evening there is a fireworks display. Amazingly, not only do they tell us the time but they even tell us where it will take place - on the "independent mole". Sure enough, at the appointed time, the sky is lit up. I miss most of it because I am trying to make the camera work properly but I am told it was very good.
After two years or so, the Trafalgar roadworks have finally finished and they have even given us a nice new (ie old) postbox. Well done chaps - keep up the good work.
