Hollow rock

mysterious gibraltar

This is my home. It is a magical piece of rock pinned onto the bottom of Spain. It is actually upsidedown, a huge lump of limestone that doesn’t belong to the rest of the land around. It has become a part of our language, *as strong as the rock of Gibraltar* and yet is almost completely hollow!!  But so beautiful inside. Heheheh!! Like all of us!! So I thought I would share some photos from the heart of my world.

gib skull 2Did you know that this skull actually out dates the Neanderthal? That here in Gibraltar there was a thriving community living in the caves? There are numerous relics that have been, and continue to be found deep inside the maze of tunnels that form the body of my home. It is a truly beautiful place, carved from water and time.

  1. Gorgeous pictures! When I first read it, I must have been distracted, or thinking about the photo of the skull because I read “carved from water and bones”…..kept looking at the pictures…..then my brain did a “Huh? Bones? Ewww” Then I scrolled back up and saw that you said “water and time” and I gave a sigh of relief (and a reminder to myself to pay closer attention when I’m reading. It looks like an amazing place!!!

    • They are incredible!! We have a natural auditorium, where we have musical concerts. Downside is the wet!! The caves are formed by water seeping through the rock, so expect to watch the opera with an umbrella!!!
