Strait Of Gibraltar. A Look At Africa From Europe. P.2.

Uritsk Andrey • 4 minutes read • April 28th, 2016
On a small patch of land on the rocky shore a group of enthusiasts with huge cameras was on duty - they were taking pictures of birds soaring over the 

Strait of Gibraltar


Here you can see Europe, Africa far away and a small Spanish village in the foreground.

Here are mountains of Africa and the sea bulker that looks like a tiny boat in the vast expanses. Africa is very close - even my mobile phone provider gladly welcomes me in Morocco.

Here are some more views of the Strait of 


and the surrounding area.

It's time for us to go back to Algeciras - on the winding road along the coast. Yesterday there was a wall of rain, and now the walk of 3 miles (5-6 kilometers) to the town is really pleasant!

Here's a lighthouse on the coast, a distant shore of Morocco, and a high-speed ferry heading towards Algeciras from Tangier.

Today the majestic 

Rock of Gibraltar 

appears before us in all its glory!

What a fantastic transparent turquoise water!

Wherever you look - there are dozens of ships. The Strait of Gibraltar is one of the busiest tracks in the world!

We continue our way along the coast back to Algeciras. Today the weather is great and we are not in a hurry. In addition, such a trip is a great way to get a sun tan! 

Today the sand beaches of the Gibraltar coast look really summer-ish. I'll definitely come back here again!

Haughty cows feed on the lush meadows.

A sleepy creek flows into the sea.

Everything is in bloom, everything blossoms... Spring!

It looks like this horse on the bank is intentionally posing for a photographer.

This was the end of our trip. After returning to Malaga, I drove to the airport, one of the terminals of which is named after Pablo Picasso. It's a quiet, calm terminal - there was no hustle and bustle like in other airports.

I managed to do everything - to see Malaga and to visit Gibraltar. I did not want to leave - because it was so warm, good, comfortable, quiet there. It is so nice to breathe in the fresh spring air! I intentionally walked till the very departure to get a lot of fresh air for a couple of months in advance.
