I'd like to share some holiday photos with you but don't want to be a bore so I'll post a few at a time!
Our first port of call was Gibraltar & I have to admit to feeling a little disappointed as it was quite run down looking & the shops were a mixture of British high street (M&S & Monsoon etc) & really tacky touristy things which looked as if they'd been there for 20 years as they were dusty & faded.
But I did happen upon a glass making factory where they were blowing glass by hand (and mouth!) & so I bought a very pretty glass vase there.
The photo below was taken by an indignant Mr Cottage - look how different the price of fuel is compared to here!
The view of the rock as we were sailing away.
