Mrs Linda Bourne, Hello again! Sorry to hear you're having a tough time at the moment health wise. I know myself and all our 'Skyline' family will be wishing you well through the coming months. A friend who lives in Scarborough and also Malta for about 4 months of the year, has just started her first cycle of chemo. She has been an inspiration to us so far, hopefully it will continue through the rough days ahead. I'm sure, with your trip in December to look forward to with your sisters, the lure of the sunshine and good company will get you through this x
Hello Viv Yes lots of memories since 1965 We stayed at Hamrun back then . Nearly brought a property in the 1970s on Main Street Mellieha it was almost £2,000 wow !!! but we had a family and it would have been a big step. I think it would be around £200.000 now . I have fond memories from all over the Island. I am just going through some gruelling Chemo which finishes in November.( If I do the full course ) So, so looking forward to December which will help me to mend. Linda B.
Mrs Linda Bourne, we have a long way to go to catch up with your impressive number of visits! In 3 weeks we'll be on our 33rd visit and we still haven't seen everything! We also celebrated our 40th and 41st wedding anniversaries in Malta with my brother and our dear friends who live in Qawra. This little country holds lots of happy memories for us and I'm sure you and your dearly loved and sadly missed husband. I've been lucky enough to have had 4 visits in the last 12 months!
Just booked my 61st visit to Malta for December 2017 .Staying at Mellieha Bay Hotel.Wished we had a Mellieha Bay Web Cam.Will there ever be one?? . Such a lovely Bay. Love Mellieha Love Malta . First came in 1965 on a British Airways prop jet got engaged on it . Will celebrate which would have been 52 years of marriage with my 2 sisters who are coming with me . My late husband passed away 1 week after our 50th anniversary 18 months ago. it is lovely to go over old ground . this is my 3rd visit in the 18 months .
Morning Skyliners! Is it just me or does it seem as though the Radisson beach loungers /umbrellas are creeping further along the beach?
Derek, you're right, had more than enough rain this summer? Kielder water, Derwentwater all our local reservoirs are all full. Even the Tyne is riding high today. Malta would love some of our excess water I think!
Beach looking full - 1 month to go & counting.
Viv.more rain today ,I have just about had enough for this summer.
Derek, you're right! I'm sure Malta would love the rain that has fallen here in Throckley since 4 am and it's still falling!! Their ground water tanks would be overflowing methinks.
Aye Viv. It's starting to dry out a bit, we don't have that problem today do we !
Hi Derek, it looks as though the sun is starting to dry the grass out on the far side.
It's all still looking green over the far side, I wonder how long it will last.
Not many folk on the beach this morning 9.30 am malta time though it is a bit damp looking still.
Ian, it is definitely not photo shopped. It is part of a sequence of 15 photos taken at 6 frames per second. I saw them do the same thing at around the same time on the two previous mornings. So on that day I was waiting for them. I actually spoke to one of the pilots the month after. He was very impressed with the photo, but denied there was any showing off. He said they have to train to fly in difficult terrain. Yeah right!!! They were definitely showing off. They left that month after many years of service to Malta. The SAR duties are now in the hands of the AFM.
