Gozo

August 22, 2008 (Day Three)

Today was a full day! We started our morning at Uncle Peter and Aunt Simone’s pool, and got to spend some time with Daniela and her boys, Jacques and Benjamin. It was wonderful to take a dip and relax by the water and take in that Mediterranean sun. We were back to the house for lunch and siesta before catching the ferry to Gozo. It was only about a 25 minute boat ride and we were able to load the car and enjoy the trip over up on deck. When we debarked, we had a quick drink with a family friend and then made our way to the Azure Window for one of the most spectacular views I have ever had the privilege of seeing in my life. The history of this landmark literally goes back millions of years and we had the pleasure of arriving just in time to catch the last of the daylight and see the sun set. I will remember it forever, and I’m thrilled that I was able to capture some great photos. A bit of trivia is that it was where part of the film The Clash of the Titans was filmed. We then drove back to the harbor for another traditional Maltese meal at Manoels. This evening I had Braġjoli, a beef dish filled with all sorts of good things including cheese, ham and curry powder cooked in a red wine sauce. With full bellies and a fantastic evening with Paula and her parents, we caught the 11 pm ferry home and headed to bed. By the way, did you know that Malta has their own fireworks factory?
