If you can't be bothered to get to the mountain. . .

Decided to 'do' Gib today. It was sunny with just a few clouds when we set off but there was a big black cloud over the rock. Not a problem when you've got to carry a load of bike gear around so we weren't at all put off. Got stopped at the border cos the police wanted to get a good look at the Creature, much to the annoyance of the queue of motorists behind, and of Ladybird who has been getting tired of no-one giving her the same attention. Left the two of them guarding the hemets while we toddled off down Main Street in the hope that M&S was open, as Mandy managed to snap the underwire in her favourite bra. It wasn't. However, we found the Angry Friar, the scene of some personal drinking triumphs of Mandy's some 30 years previously. Ambled towards the cable car with the idea of popping up to see the apes, but as luck would have it there was a family of three, mum, teeager and toddler in the Trafalgar cemetary who allowed us to watch them forraging. So we saved a heap of cash there. Back to the hotel for late lunch and a relax before planning the next leg of the journey to Cartagena tommorow.
