Our Ninth Blog Entry:We both commented that Gibraltar had been a great day. It's a great example of 'minimal expectations and an overwhelming result'. We did our 'homework' and decided to run down the coast, through Marbella, and on to Malaga. From there, we planned to run inland to a recommended 'must see' at a little place called Ronda. The run through Marbella was great. The ocean is still a classic blue, and the coastline of sandy beaches (though they have turned a dark grey, ...

There was also a section of ...
