Sunday 9th January 2011

Today is Sunday so we must be off to La Canada to eat pizzas - stopping on the way to watch some people messing about in boats. There is a big crowd looking at them - why I am not sure.

Monday 10th January 2011

At Morrisons a car has been clamped. Like antelopes in the Serengeti watching a relative being eaten by a lion, we carry on foraging for food.

Tuesday 11th January 2011

Somewhat cloudy all day.

Wednesday 12th January 2011

The weather is much better so we go for a long walk around all the boats for sale in Gibraltar. This particular boat seems to have lost its sale sign but I very much like the ropes (or "sheets", as we nautical types call them). Maybe it is not for sale? I suppose there could be some boats which are not for sale.

Thurday 13th January 2011

We are on our way to Ronda but stop to admire Gibraltar's personal weather system. Our rental car corners like a dream - it is a SEAT Econo-something but drives like it is on rails. Eventually, I just start driving into corners so fast that even my girlfriend stops yelling "faster, faster" and unlocks the doors ready to climb out of the wreckage.

We eat near Ronda and then go to Puerto Banus to admire the super yachts. The one I like has a mast as high as a thirteen storey building. Obviously, it is for sale and I decide it is a must have. Later I discover they want 3,800,000 euros which cools my enthusiasm somewhat.

Friday 14th January 2011

In the morning HMS Iron Duke shows up. She is probably for sale too, now I come to think of it.

Saturday 15th January 2011

We go back to Puerto Banus to see our new super yacht and eat ice cream. Mainly to eat ice cream. When we get there the sale sign has fallen off.

We come back to Gibraltar and decide to go round the southern route via Europa Point. This road has just been re-opened after a new structure was built to stop the rocks from crashing down and killing people. Seriously, it seems people were killed which is why the road was closed for some years.
