Getting tired, we walked back to get the car to continue our exploration hopefully around the whole peninsula. We passed near the Shrine of Our Lady of Europa and through the Keightley Tunnel, a single lane tunnel with about a 12-inch gap between our mid sized car and the walls. Along the road one can see the mountain peaks of northern Africa that are only 15 miles away. There is a constant procession of merchant ships and tankers crossing the blue Mediterranean and green Atlantic boundary. Unfortunately the Dudley Ward tunnel at Governor’s bay that connects to the road on the cliff side was closed, so it took about an hour to snake back through to the Spanish border.
In hindsight, we should have obtained a proper road map to make a complete tour of this peninsula. The roads are winding at different elevations with the connections only know by the locals.
