At the very tip of Gibraltar is a lighthouse, and a fine view of Africa when it isn't totally hazy. It also becomes quite apparent that there are a lot of ships anchored all around Gibraltar, east and west of the peninsula. Why? We think they're staged for loading and unloading, but really we have no idea!
Anika was enthralled with all the cacti in this little park!
It turns out that Gibraltar is the only place in Europe to have "wild" monkeys, the Barbary Macaque. (While these monkeys aren't kept in cages, they are fed and vaccinated and otherwise cared for, so can you really call them wild?)
Rumor has it that these monkeys (sub-apes, actually, as they have no tail) originally came to Gibraltar via an underground tunnel whose exit is in a huge cave, which is also located in the nature reserve.
From here we meandered our way down to Marrakech.
