The Rock

So it was a miserable rainy day, but that seemed somewhat fitting for visiting a little piece of England eh?! (and Yes I will always be a Brit and discuss said weather constantly, normally with a hint of whining! - old habits...) Chris last visited Gibraltar about 20 years ago, me - I'd never been and was keen to! So despite the weather we took the cable car up 'the rock' - a 1396ft tall monolith looming over the entrance to the Meditterreanean sea. Good views and......LOTS of Monkeys!! Gibraltar rock is home to around 250 Barbary Macaques, commonly known as 'apes'; they are the only wild monkeys found in Europe and they're very fond of the tourists, plastic bags (preferably with food in) and biting (apparently). Actually them seemed cute enough to me and frankly are outrageous posers!
