“FILMSETS AND CHAINS”

GOOD FRIDAY OUTING

Good Friday Day time outing was to a small restaurant at Xmagg ix -Xini P1000513.JPGwhere 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 P1000534.JPGon farm tracks and down a very steep road ( road is an odd word for this track )..There at the bottom is a lovely cove ..P1000530.JPGonly 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 P1000524.JPG…but eventually we ordered and it was Moules all round …4 chips and one Barracuda for the youngest..P1000515.JPG

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 … P1000701P1000644P1000632P1000662.jpgP1000672.jpgP1000724.JPGP1000803

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.

  1. What a fabulous time you are having! The Easter festivities put our own to shame, don’t they? I guess Malta, like Greece, sees Easter are the most important time in the Church calendar, more so than Christmas. Meanwhile back in the UK, the ‘procession’ on Good Friday is to the supermarket to stock up with chocolate eggs and sticky, hot cross buns with little thought to the religious festival that enables everyone to have a long weekend if they choose!
    Photos are wonderful, Susan, and so pleased to hear John’s tooth has been taken care of. See you when you get home? Take care.
