Sept. 14th, On the Mediterranean Sea,

We just left Gibraltar yesterday. Noon we get to Marselles.  Thence to Monaco at 8 a.m.  Then we stope at Naples Italy, with in two days from France.  We are having a fine time.  No one sick on this trip.  We had a storm when we crossed the Atlantic.  One day was bad.  All of boys were sick.  I have not been sick yet.  Howard and Paul are so well and having a fine time.

My memories of Gibraltar go back 10years.
First view of it from far, a mist/cloud veiled huge rock.
'Gib' is a country, a town and a rock.
Saw monkeys sunbathing on a stone fence, had a parking run-in with a 'Boby' and ate porc roast at "The angry Friar".
The line up at the border to comments.

I've never been there. I imagine a rock with a pub and spoiled monkeys at the top.
