On the Fernandes, ready to start…

It was a beautiful day, just right for a cruise around the island of Malta.  We boarded a Turkish gullet, The Fernandes, and were very excited to spend this gorgeous day at sea. We picked up the schooner in Sliema and were soon on our way, northward towards Gozo.   It was a perfect day.


This blog enhances my book Return to Malta by visiting most of the places mentioned in the book with color photos. The book is available through Amazon and other book stores.

A Cruise around Malta

A beautiful day, a beautiful ship and lots of friendly people.  We started the cruise at the Sliema Marina and as we rounded the coast we could see the sea view of the Hilton and the Radisson Hotels. We had smooth sailing and passed by various harbors including  St. Julian’s, St. Paul’s Bay and Mellieha Bay. In  between these bays, we saw panoramic cliffs, inlets and coves. It was a perfect day to be on the sea.
