The painting was from the 1700's as was the sculpture, works of art in their own right.

Cadiz, Cape Trafalgar and into Gibraltar
We spent about four days in Cadiz waiting for the winds to turn from easterlies to westerlies, that all there is in the Strait of Gibraltar, it doesn't ever blow north or south , just in or out. The first two days we did not do any sight seeing we just watched Olympics. We found some tavernas that would put up with our slow drinking so we could watch TV. They did not ever try to give us the bum's rush and were more than willing to change the channel when we wanted. We watched a lot of stuff we probably normally wouldn't have, for examlple, Spanish women's basketball, and Spanish women's badminton, we also saw endless replays of a male Spanish kayaker winning the gold medal in the 200m. sprint, we enjoyed watching the men's tennis where Raphael Nadal was featured in doubles, then singles, I was routing for him to go for gold, then bronze in the singles. It ha been very hot so we drank beer throughout the afternoon and evening while glued to the TV.
