I have a personal credo, to never give advice (unless it’s unasked for) so, if someone suggests you take to the sea, I recommend you pull a Nike, and just do it.
Cheers to you from the Med, and just yesterday, from the Wide Sargasso Sea. Now hanging out again, with the land dwelling apes, and their cousins.

Jane Goodall is right. Apes are magnificent and so incredibly human. Look at their eyes……..

Gibraltar is gorgeous. You must visit and meet the real king of the mountain! They love to monkey around (even though they are Barbary Apes!) They don’t seem too impressed by us…who can blame them, some humans actually feed them M&M’s for heavens sakes! They aren’t the least bit afraid of us either, although some humans shrieked in their presence which frightened me. Just goes to show they are wise old apes…..
