Back from Malta


I've been away from the computer for a few days because we went to Malta to get some sun and relax a bit. It was a nice time. We got a three day bus pass and covered most of the island. I really liked the old buses there...made me think of Disney cartoons.
I was amazed at the number of churches and shrines on the island. After the second day my DH opted out of the tours...he did go to the blue grotto with me which is really stunning spot. We went out on a tiny boat and went in and out of the "caves."

All and all it was a nice trip but it is even nicer to be home. Now back to the Carolina Crossroads.....

Oh, that looks just lovely in the sun and warmth. I keep repeating to myself that "spring will come". Not sure I believe it yet :0).

What a beautiful place. Glad you had a relaxing time. I am back to my Carolina Crossroads, too. Too many other things get in the way of my sewing. Wish I could just sit home all day and sew. Have a great weekend.

The Blue Groto is such a beautiful place. How fun! My Caroling Crossroads is still sitting on my sewing table. Some day....

My father is very fond of Malta - he was stationed there in the RAF as a medic orderly looking after casevacs from the Korean War - sadly because he's scared stiff of flying he's never been back - at almost 78 I guess he probably never will but it's a place I'd love to visit if only to go and see the places that have stuck in his memory all this time
