Posts Tagged ‘Gibralter’

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!

Boy was that busy! Hints on where to stay and where to eat cheaply.. only thing holding me back is the fact that my internet is down.  So stay tuned, I think you are going to really enjoy it.  Book Mark Me.
