Re: How do you make a Maltese cross…..?

Jeeez, Marsalforn is correct I HAVE been slouching on the updates from Malta, so where was I, oh yes, it snowed on Malta this last winter, for the first time since 1962 and only the fifth time the last 250 years, and cold too, to cold for me, it want down to 9°, one woman remarked that the snow looked "just like hail, only softer" it has also been the longest and coldest winter since 1982, I have taken to Mc Givering a heater, sort of, in my flat, a big rock ontop of the gas cooker but it has keep the chill out.
But the prognoses for summer is set to be long and hot, maybe we are gonna look at this cold period with envy.
The winter storms were also quite a doozy, one after another and with a force seldom seen, we even had a rare Medicane, a hurricane in the med, pretty scary stuff indeed, almost the entire coastline where humans have erected structures down to the sea edge have sustained damage, down at the popeye village five ton blocks of concrete were tossed around like legos, sea walls have collapsed and the swimming pool at sirens here in St. Paul's is smashed.
The Maltese do what they always do: "Mela" and rebuild.


Over the wall at St. Paul's


The cliffs at anchor bay, you simply can't get the scale on camera, but these are 60 meter. high.


But not all is lost, the free diving season has started, at least for me…:-)


And annoying the divers at the Madonna at Chirkewwa, at 18 meters underwater if you are interested. I love it when they start checking their dive computers for the depth.

So what else is new, I found the wreckage of a Short Sunderland and will be getting some of the guys and galls from the bottle breathers to go and see if we can find bigger bits, let's see… hmmm! Cannon balls off the fort in Valletta, gonna check out the submerged 38 ton guns of Fort Rinella and see if I can find the 70-odd 18th century cannon and go and visit the firing pads for the Brennan torpedo also at Rinella..
It's gonna be a great summer.

Re: How do you make a Maltese cross…..?

Thanks, Slammer, I was defo missing my Malta fix. The Anchor Bay scenario looks like a tsunami to me - sea looking like its boiling, with no discernable direction. A freediver myself, I love the u/w shots too. Love going under the air-breathers!
