Easter Weekend Photos

Some shots from the past Easter Weekend in Gozo.
The first pic,below, is quite an interesting one as it shows where the 3 roads meet on the hill to Dwejra. I have put an explanation in the photo itself.


The above photo of the Azure Window in Dwejra is taken from an angle one doesn't usually see it from. To get this view one has to go along a long dirt track on the outskirts of San Lawrenz and Gharb. It is a lovely walk and views are spectacular - summer sunsets even better.

The silver boot lies above the small traditional cobbler's work shop in Victoria.

What is usually a rather dreary looking succulent most of the year comes to life in Spring. The above plants sit on the surrounding wall of San Pupulju farmhouse

Cliffs, Cliffs and more Cliffs

The coastline of the Maltese islands is mostly cliffs and I never tire of this dramatic scenery. I love the contrast of the limestone cliffs with the deep blue colour of the sea.
