Posts Tagged ‘Barbary Apes’

Well we are still on day one of our road trip from Salobreña. After seeing the monkeys, we decided to stay the night in a small inexpensive pension.  Two beds to the room, bathroom down the hall. 40 pounds a night per room, and it includes an English breakfast. One egg, bacon, 1 sausage, 1 toast, juice and coffee, jam and butter.  There may have been something else on the plate, but I cannot remember.  The name of the place was the Cannon Hotel.  It is basically a 1 star property.  The photos today are in and around the town and shots of the harbor, airport and cemetery.  I will give you more info about the rock itself tomorrow. Enjoy!

So believe it or not, this is still the same day… day 1.  We have been to Guadix, La Calahorra, Ronda, the cork forests, and now Gibraltar.  We stayed the night in Gibraltar, and I will give more details on that later.. I have a great number of photos of the Barbary Apes, mainly because I can’t resist them.  The Gibraltar post, will be spread out over 2 or 3 days so that I can show you everything.

Without further explanation, The Barbary Apes of Gibraltar.

And I have the bite marks to prove it.  It was a juvenile that did this.. more of a love bite, but it did hurt.
