A contradiction in terms !

On the quayside at Ognina N36.97953 E15.25810

A good over nighter quiet with roaring seas … That’s a contradiction you say … NO … Quiet as in only natures orchestration to be heard .. Love it …

Next day an early off to Pozzallo to try to get information re: our excursion to Gozo in the Maltese Islands to visit my stepdaughter Emma and her two boys Sam and Tom
The original plan was to take Hetty over for the summer .. Fly home as we have the Christening of Ruby Scout Hurran my lovely granddaughter in September and fly back out to Malta in October for the return road trip

We found that our Hetty is to long .. She is classed as commercial … Cost to take her is €586.. us two €224 …flights home and back €400 and that’s before the taxi to and from airports ….big change of plan …now booked the ferry

at €224 …car parking €35 Emma organising taxi to pick us up in Valetta at €40 + return … So for about €350 instead of at least €1200 we get to visit Emma for six days .. And sail back to Italy on 11/06/14 ..
