Scarletta visits Rota, Spain


For those of you not in the know, Scarletta just wrapped up the first of several shows in Europe and now I can blab about the first one.  Their first destination was Rota, Spain, and here are pic's.  According to my undercover source (Benji), Rota is a Spanish Naval Base but they have allowed Americans to use it and share their port, since 1953.  For that reason, the American flag is not flown.  Since the base was celebrating July 4th, that is the only day the American flag is allowed to be flown.  When they met the Master Chief of the Base, he presented them with the flag that had just been flown and saluted by the 600 service men and women of the base, that day.  Benji said they were humbled and honored to be given  this year's flag.  You can see Nathan holding it, all perfectly folded.  Sorry the pic is a little dark.  Navy photographer.  :(((
Next is a shot of their stage. They should be finished for the night since it's 11:38 pm in Rota as I am typing this.  The drill is, I'm not allowed to post anything until they have left the base for good.  And by the time you read this, they're long gone.
And last but not least, their hotel.
As hard as I try....I'm not feeling too sorry for this bunch right now.  A hotel that's off the base, steps from the beach, and looks like this???  Tough duty.  You're breakin' my heart.

Let freedom ring no matter where you are!
