GOOD FRIDAY OUTING
Good Friday Day time outing was to a small restaurant at Xmagg ix -Xini where the film “By the Sea” Angelina Joli produced and starred in with Brad Pitt as her co star ..The film got terrible reviews but the setting is stunning“By the Sea”
After a very hairy drive in the Jeep on farm tracks and down a very steep road ( road is an odd word for this track )..There at the bottom is a lovely cove ..only used by locals and people in the know…Tour coaches haven’t a chance but still the parking area filled up as dive schools four wheel drive vehicles came down and dispatched their customers on the pebbled beach ..All the tables were reserved so the wait was long ..but who cares ..Its waiting in the sun ..must admit the boys ..Emma’s sons Aged 10 and 7 got a tad bored …but eventually we ordered and it was Moules all round …4 chips and one Barracuda for the youngest..
At 5-30 time for the off to Victoria ..just 5 minutes drive to watch the Good Friday Penitent Procession … Barefooted Hooded Chained men walked in procession with the Priests and Parishioners carrying St George’s Church Statues for miles around Victoria …
St George’s Church lite in purple…interior in black which would be removed after friday’s ceremony
