The Rock   5 comments

It’s been a very busy week, I have my Nephew staying with me, and I have been showing him the sites of London one pub at a time, it’s very exhausting work but someone has to do it.

Back to Gibraltar.

After my walk all over and around the ‘Rock’ I hunted down the guys I was travelling with and looking forward to a long cool beverage was glad to find them near a pub, but just as I got there we had the phone call, we were to join the ship tonight and sail to the rig over night, oh well it was fun while it lasted. We left Gibraltar some time in the early hours and sailed back towards Malta meeting the rig on way, once boarding the rig our boat was swapped over with the tow boat and then that one departed for Gibraltar, towing with one boat was very slow going so by the time it was back to join the tow the following day we hadn’t moved very far. It was another couple of days before we went through the Straits of Gibraltar and ended up being very good timing as it was one of the guys 25th birthday and he had purchased 5 very nice cigars, we finished off the day chilling under the helideck smoking fine cigars and watching the sunset over the Rock.

  1. To me your “work” seems as hard as spending time (and money) on a cruise ship.
    The only difference might be you’re towing some heavy stuff behind it.
    Pfffff…..smoking big cigars, while chilling under the helideck, overlooking this panorama, life can be sóóó hard.
    Have a great weekend Mark, cheers Pim.

  2. Not a bad place to ‘chill’ with a backdrop as good as that. Nice one, Mark.
