THE PILLARS OF HERCULES ON THE COAST GF AFRICA
The USS Dewey CDDG-451 entered the Mediterranean Sea on the thirtieth of January, 1977. On
this cloudy, misty day the majority of the crew was on the Weather decks viewing the historical Straits
of Gibraltar. Gn the left hand side of the ship the Spanish coastline featuring the Rock of Gibraltar,
on the right the Northern African Coast with the Pillars of Hercules standing out enticing all
photographers. On the afternoon of our transit, the Rock of Gibralter was obscured by a rain cloud
which prevented the photo coverage that it deserved. But the sun treated us to delightful view of the
mountain range on both sides of the Pillars of Hercules. This display of historical splendor lasted all
afternoon and well into the evening. When the sun set that evening, many of the crew members were
talking, as usual, of the return trip back to the United States. The next time that the ship would pass
through these straits would be on one of the last legs of the cruise.
