This morning we awoke to hear the fog horns singing to each other across the bay – we are in the sea mist season now. The mornings begin grey and misty but as the day progresses the clouds and fog burn off to leave blue skies and hot sunshine.
And here’s Gibraltar poking her head up through it all. It looks like a foamy sea has hit high tide!
Do you know what it is? It reminds me of an acquilegia but also has a hint of orchid about it I think. It has little spiky seed pods further down it’s stems.
What ever it is I think it’s gorgeous, like little purple pixie hats!
It took my mind off the climb for a bit at least.
Blimey, it was hot!
I won’t be fooled by the fog again so easily, that’s for sure!
At the top you could see the fog stretched all the way across to Morocco:
It also consumed the Bay of Gibraltar:
Still I guess if it hadn’t have arrived overnight I would never have contemplated going up the steps and seen those lovely purple flowers!
I’m off for a lie down now I think ;-).
