*Gibraltar Rock Photographic Blog
“Hey Jack, are you free next Friday for some magic at a party at the Gibraltar Rock?”
“Really, the Gibraltar Rock?! Also known as the Rock of Gibraltar? Also known as the Pillars of Hercules, a monolithic limestone promontory located in the British overseas territory of Gibraltar, near the southwestern tip of Europe on the Iberian Peninsula and 426 m high!? Hell yeah! That would be cool! Consider me booked. Can you pay for my flight?”
“No, no. The Gibraltar Rock pub in Tynemouth”
“Oh. Yeah of course. I knew that. I was just messing. Honest. Tynemouth. Yep. I’m up for that.”
So, what’s better than a party on a rocky outcrop at the tip of the Mediterranean? A party at a pub with a lush view over North Sea of course! (And a twenty minute stroll up the coast is a much better bet than a 1 hr 15 min flight to Heathrow, followed by a 1 hr 10 min coach to Gatwick then a 2 hr 55 min flight out to Gibraltar.)
The icing on the cake comes when one of the guests sends you a few pictures over and you can make a phlog (aka “photographic blog”) out of them. Thanks for the pictures Jay. And thanks Sophie for pulling some great “that’s an impressive trick” faces.
So, without further ado, here’s my latest phlog. Gib-o-phlog.
