This article was taken of www.di-ve.com. Have to admit it is sad to see our lovely old Malta buses being taken over by the modern ones which have absolutely no character whatsoever (and please don't argue that they are airconditioned in the summer cos the air conditioning is never on!)
''The old DBY364, which came out of service around 3 years ago, is a true hybrid traditional bus, with a Leyland engine in a modified 1943 Bedford QL army truck chassis and a Maltese Sammut body. It has since been restored at Zinnu Bus & Coach Works to incorporate much of its original body, including flared twin headlights and side panels. The side door was also moved back to its original position when 2-man crews were evident. The restored bus had just one Maltese appearance since being rebuilt – at last Sunday’s Annual Commercial Truck & Bus Rally in Pembroke – and it will be her last. On Thursday, the bus is set to take the ferry to Genoa before undertaking a 1,000km-journey to Calais to catch a ferry into Dover to reach its final destination in Kent. It will be used in promotional activities for both business and tourism by the Maltese authorities in London.''

A busy time from now on with refurbishment/renovation works starting next month in one of our Gozo farmhouses, 'San Pupulju'. Emptying the house out, measuring floors and walls, loads of quotations for tiles from various places etc etc. An exciting time!
Yesterday saw the arrival of 'Hakuna Matata' in Mellieha Bay. John was one of the crew members who brought down the new pleasure boat from Greece. It will be operating various trips from Mellieha bay for tourists through Oh Yeah Watersports.

Used my Fanatic 81L wave board and Tushingham Rock 5m and was very comfortable on that kit. Alot of kites out and had a couple of close shaves being knocked into the water twice after lines caught the top of my mast!! I was not a very happy person at those times!!!!!!!!
Tomorrow may be sailable again - fingers crossed.
