MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: PILLARS OF HERCULES

ROCK OF GIBRALTARJEBEL MUSA

Guarding the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea are the Pillars of Hercules.  To the north (left photo)  is the well-known Rock of Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory found on the southernmost tip of Spain.  To the south (right photo) is the imposing Jebel Musa in Morocco.  The legend is that Hercules, while fulfilling one of his 12 Labours, smashed through the rock that was the god Atlas and created the opening to the Atlantic Ocean, leaving the limestone promontories to overlook the Strait of Gibraltar.

MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: RONDA, SPAIN

RONDA, SPAIN

The Costa del Sol (Marbella, Puerto Banus, San Pedro etc) in Spain, is where the beautiful people congregate…..some call it the Costa del Crime, others the Costa del Sin.  But an hour and half up a winding switchback road will bring you to the lovely town of Ronda.  Hidden up in the mountains it is a shopper’s delight, with leather goods galore on offer.  The Puente Nuevo (New Bridge) traverses an amazing ravine and the town perches precariously on the cliff tops.
