National Day Gibraltar – 2009

Of course we missed the political rally in Casemates, the boring speech in the Piazza and the release of the balloons.

The balloons must have disappeared very fast as we left home at 1pm but not a single one was in the sky.

Wandered down the Piazza where everyone was happily partying on.

‘Want to dance?’ asked Partner.

‘Yes great,’ I said happily and set off into the square. Horrified look. ‘I’m not going down there.’ Oh well, nice idea for a few seconds.

Off down Main Street, people, dog and child spotting looking for interesting red and white combinations.

More music outside the Venture.

Next up, Ocean Village to see if there was anything happening there. A new bar, Ipanema was absolutely lleno, and Champions Planets was pretty busy too.

Status Quo are apparently playing down there tonight – somewhere.

But in the afternoon, right now, there is music from Kings Bastion, and a group performing at Town Range (£3 entry fee – not really necessary when I can hear it very loud and very clear in the flat for free).

Oh and the dog – like the rest of us – decided to get into the spirit of things, even if he is a Spanish campo dog.

  1. Lovely pics! I rather like the red ensembles! And Status Quoooooooo ;0DPippa looks so handsome in his t-shirt too.I see from the photos and the t-shirt slogans, the Gibraltarians are still very pro British. Just wish we had visited now, we were so near but a trip to far in the jalopy we had hired.I have been having a Greta Garbo phase…..Letty ;0D Who had many curls yesterday.
