Cadiz. A beautiful city with quaint narrow streets at right angles to each other leading to many lovely squares.
In every street we saw tiny little boutique shops and wandered how they survived.
A MAGNIFICENT CHURCH IN ONE OF THE SQUARES – PERFECTLY SYMETRICAL.
Beautiful iron work on this gate
And on these balconies and windows – just love it.
We stumbled upon this market – a work of art isn’t it?
We wandered around for a couple of hours before Mike’s knee and my back started aching so it was back to the ship for lunch. Mike ate nothing, he was not hungry but I indulged in a little Greek salad and some fish. Not so hot today on deck so we went to our favourite bar and settled down to read.
Art Deco at it’s finest
I nodded off and so did Mike and some guy on the other side was snoring for England! I decided to go for a nap so that I could enjoy the evening activities and Mike said he read but I bet he slept too!
After dinner we went up on deck to watch us go through the straits of Gibraltar and we appeared to be very close to the African coast as the lights ashore were large and bright. The moon cast a shimmering light on the water which was beautiful and very romantic and guesses what? I had a bit of wind which Barry would have been proud of. How embarrassing. Walking back to the lifts, half way along the deck, we reckoned it was further than walking up Merryland Gardens! I bet you won’t believe that bit BUT it is true.
