Gibraltar, UK

It’s appropriate that we share some photos from our visit to Gibraltar on June 6 when we remember the sacrifices made during WWII, especially on D-Day.  Gibraltar is the gateway between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean and is a strategic location.  It was a supporter of and supplier for the Island of Malta off Italy that was hotly contested.  It was bombed several times by the Vichy French and Italian air forces.  You can still see signs of this war time experience through out the Rock.  We visited St. Michael’s Cave and the Siege Tunnels built by the British in the late 1700s during their war with Spain.  However, the real attractions are the Barbary Macaques that inhabit the top of the Rock.  If you want to see all of our Gibraltar photos go to:  https://dancooksey.smugmug.com/Mediterranean-Cruise-2018/Gibraltar-UK/
