It was indeed sad news. The famous and beautiful Azure Window, in Gozo, Malta, has succumbed to a wild storm that tore it and plunged it into the sea on March 8, 2017. This very famous tourist attraction had been eroding for some time and met its end when Malta was hit by rough seas and stormy weather. The Prime Minister of Malta said that it was indeed a sad day when this happened. The Azure Window had been featured in the “Game of Thrones” premiere. It must have been an awesome sight when this 92 foot high limestone arch simply dropped into the sea.
I am so glad I was able to see it before tragedy struck.
