Aug 31 - Sea day
Sept 1- Gibraltar - I touched land! Hooray!  Not without effort though - I had to hunt down the 'get off the ship' badge and away I went.  The only thing I knew about Gibraltar was there are monkeys here. My plan was to scout the process and plan for next week, and see what is here in the meantime. I walked, glad to be outside and on land, through the gates of the fortification walls and into the city centre. Again, lots of shopping but noticeably higher end (more expensive) than the ports further east. Lots of jewelry and electronics, and of course pubs! My new project is Four Square (an iPhone app that pinpoints and records your location) so I gave that a shot but it was too overcast to get a signal. The monkeys can wait until next trip so off to the pub I go! On my walk through town I mentally recorded the IPs, made my way back to the most local looking, and had myself a Caffreys (a little butter beer!) On my way back to the ship I found a map and completed my task for 'how to see the monkeys' next week. Oh, and I discovered there's caves here too! Hopefully I can do that too!

Mom on

I was so happy for you honey, so very happy when I heard the message. I'm looking forward to all your updates. We thought Barcelona was one of the nicest places, enjoy. We're home, had a fantastic time. Met lots of great people. We have decided we're too old to go that far again, next trip is the St Lawrence eastern Canada trip next time to New York.

Have fun, be safe! Love Mom
