Gibraltar

Friday August 6th.

Ah. The Rock of Gibraltar.  Gibraltar is a British overseas territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula at the entrance of the Mediterranean. We are stopping there but not touching land (well, except for our anchors). We need to take on fuel. Bunkering.  Gilbraltar was ceded to Britain by Spain under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. We dropped our anchors, sat head-to-wind, a fuel ship came alongside. And we filled er up. Took 8 hours. Then up-anchor and away for Morocco.
