I’m so glad we decided to rent a car and drive the 140 Km from Malaga to Gibraltar to see the “ROCK”. It was an amazing experience and on Ryan’s bucket list. We arrived by bus in Malaga and the airbnb let us book in early so we left our luggage in the house. We left after lunch from Malaga and had a very easy drive on a nice freeway all the way there. We payed road toll money in total about 15 euro. The surrounding landscape was beautiful with the Mediterranean sea on the one side and mountains on the other.
We parked our car at the La Linea parking lot and walked over from Spain to British soil. They didn’t stamp our passports! Aww. We took the bus that drove over the airfield into the city and to the cable cars. The Rock is a 426 m high, single standing mountain. We decided to queue for the cable cars to go up, as it was late afternoon and the queue moved fast. UNFORTUNATELY it was hazy and cloudy so we could not see Africa across the strait but we kind of imagined that we did!! The wind blasted humid air up the one side of the mountain and up into the air, to form a cloud over the mountain. The Barbary macaque monkeys are known to cause trouble and will grab food and things from people. I think they had enough to eat as there were only 2 when we arrived late afternoon. They are given food at a certain spot maybe to help curb the problem.
Psalm18:2 in the bible says The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
