Last Friday I finally got down to Petit Cafe in Ocean Village, to attend craft club. Jenny who invited me (and who has featured on here before) had told me about the group, and all of the different things they do. But it makes such a difference to see it all happening in the flesh.… Read More Craft Club
I can’t entirely remember what we had to eat. Three of us had nachos of some variety and Mr BOTR had a chicken dish which came in a really cute pastry case. We also order battered and fried vegetables and potato wedges with jalapeños and cheese to share. What I can tell you… Read More The Cuban – Ocean Village – Gibraltar
Confession time. I might have mentioned before how bad my sense of direction is? Even here, with the massive chunk of land that the Rock is, to be my guide, I can still get lost. I hate being lost. So I have never really ventured to Upper Town Gibraltar. The tiny winding roads, passages and… Read More Our Upper Town walkabout.
Yesterday saw myself and some friends brave the border queue, we were very lucky in that we didn’t get caught in traffic at all, and on my way back into Gibraltar I hopped out of the car and popped by the craft fair in Ocean Village. I wanted goats cheese and thankfully I snagged the… Read More Ocean Village Craft Fair – Gibraltar
OK, so the marina in Ocean village is still being worked on. Dinner at the casino the other evening, gave me a great view over the area they are ‘flotelerising’. (You are all welcome to use my new word, a small work of genius if you ask me ;-)) I didn’t take my camera with… Read More Just for Blu – Flotel Update 🙂
Honestly when I first heard the word ‘flotel’ I sort of laughed. I wasn’t sure if someone was a)pulling my leg or b) making up words to see if I would repeat them in a naive fashion. Anyway my worries are now over as the boat equivalent of the film ‘Inception’ rocked up today. (No… Read More The FLOTEL arrives?
For those of you who stop by this blog on a regular basis, you will know that I have mentioned Jenny’s Jewels before, (in the post about one of our best boutiques here in Gibraltar, Chique Boutique) today I was lucky enough to spend time and have a natter with, the lovely Jenny herself. It… Read More Jenny’s Jewels – Artisans in Gibraltar
I know a lot of people who aren’t too fond of these buildings, but I love the lines of them. Depending on the sun and sky the reflection on the glass fronted balconies can be exquisite. I also like how they contrast against the older elements of Gibraltar. I think it is the news of… Read More Ocean Village – Gibraltar
At the moment there is a special offer on cocktails at Ipanema. After looking at the website I see they are famed for them. See what you miss out on when you don’t really drink?! I love the roasted meats there, and the buffet, and the ice-cream. So anyway, the 2-4-1 cocktail offer lured me… Read More Ipanema – Ocean Village – Gibraltar
The sky was so blue yesterday. The balustrade seemed to merge with the sky.
We felt like having an Indian meal the other evening so we popped down to Laziz in Ocean Village. Whilst we haven’t heard that much about this place, it is based just up from Ipanema Restaurant, so we have walked past it a few times, and it usually smells pretty good. As it was early… Read More Laziz Restaurant, Gibraltar
I’m still torn on whether or not I like these buildings. There is no disputing that make quite an impact on the coast line of Gibraltar, but it wasn’t until I saw them the other day at sunset that I finally decided that yes, the design does work for me, but perhaps only at sunset…… Read More Gib Architecture # 13 – Ocean Village Sunset – Gibraltar
