#1: Looking North towards Cabo Trafalgar

(visited by Captain Peter and Leon Leprozo)

23-Feb-2005 -- We have left the port of Ceuta, and after transiting the Strait of Gibraltar with destination Wilhelmshaven in Germany we arrived at 36N 6W. Visibility is still excellent, and so we decided to make a second visit to this point.

Looking North, we see Cape Trafalgar at left and the cliffs of the Spanish coast. To the Northeast there is the quite densely populated Spanish coast, looking East, we see the Strait of Gibraltar, and to the South there is Cabo Espartel (Cap Spartel) in Morocco.

This narrative is rather short, but I am tired this evening. A confluence in the morning, then entering a port, taking fuel, going to the town in an internet-point, leaving the port again, then another confluence… and all this without my afternoon beauty nap from usually 1 to 4 p.m.… definitely too much for an old man…
