Yea, was there around that time and again in the early 70's. Will be there for a day soon (cruise) for the first time since. Doubt I will recognise much but looking forward to that 'run ashore'
Thanks for that! Cruise line we are with allows us to bring a bottle on board as long as it's consumed in your cabin. Reason is that a basic booze package is included in the cost of the cruise for all Passengers. Suppose they surmise that if we are drinking our own glop in our cabins, we ain't drinking theirs at the bar! So will take advantage of a nice bottle of pussers when in Gib!You may see one or two changes! Main Street is pedestrianised and Casemates has been tarted up and has loads of eateries..... well, fish and chips! On the plus side (yeh right!) EVERY shop wil have a poster with the name of YOUR cruise ship, offering special deals! Both ROOKE and The Hole in The Wall have gone this year, sob! Grumpy Monk and Donkey's Flip Flop still there, but more or less UK prices. Woods is £5.25 a litre bottle, Pusser's about £9 a bottle, but then they'll not let you take it back onboard, will they! Have fun and remember it the way it was!
