JCC, have you stayed at The Preluna?? If so, your comments please would be appreciated. We used to stay at Fortina Spa, but no more !!
The Road Devil has an umbrella up ..... hope that's a good sign, my wife & I love to eat there but think that our 2 weeks in June will be called off.
Chris, i remember the ballroom, i have never been in, but I do remember walking past during the afternoons and seeing the the ladies and gents, all dressed up going into the afternoon dance sessions. A slower pace of life i think then.
Anyone else remember the Ballroom Dancing Club that used to be on the right hand side, where the apartment block now is.
Greetings to all at the Preluna. That is if it is open.
Camera needs a clean !
@Derek James Bevan, know what you mean re development, cranes all over the place these days, real building boom, hope to visit again, but you never know now.
@Derek James BevanI lived in Malta for 3 years in the mid 50's and again from 1962 - 65. I lived in Gzira opposite Manoel Island and used to swim in the shadow of Fort Manoel every day. I didn't return until 2015 and realised just how much I had missed the island. I visited again in 2018 and was planning to visit in May/June of this year. Like you, I am wondering why I didn't return 20 or 30 years ago.
I see that the police are having to remind folks of the need to keep their social distance as people are still congregating in groups . William Clarke .I was over for eleven days last October and would normally be back this month but due to the fact Malta is getting far too busy and all the development going on I decided to make it the last visit . Now its so quiet but for all the wrong reasons. Still I have enjoyed my visit only wish would have been able to go twenty or more years ago.
Hi Derek James Bevan, we were at the Fort Manoel open day too, yes, a real hot day, I see MIDI say work now finished, was supposed to be a 7 year project, but well worth the wait. We used to wander around a lot until it was closed off and I used to go and look at the old shale footy ground that was the Town end in front on the Ravelin of the fort, hard to believe but European games played there when they had lost the use of the Empire Stadium in Gzira. After the Fort visit we went on to the fete at the Msida Bastion Cemetery and historic garden, a real fine day out. Should have been back next month & September, but confined to barracks anyway. Hope to see the old place again, best wishes to all in these troubled times.
Quite a few people out walking plus a group of 4 men standing talking and definitely not keeping at least 2 metres apart.
JCC if you go over to the Popeye camera its like a mill pond over there .
hi folks .this time last year I was in Malta on the Sunday Fort Manaol was open to the public I spent quite a long time there in scorching sunshine the place very busy,what a difference a year can make. Gan canny .
Breakers on the rocks today. NWerly gale. Ships at anchorage are heave to ride the waves.
Just spotted one of the residents of the Preluna Hotel crossed the road to the esplanade to do her exercises. Gym and spa have closed. Sign of the times.
JCC, the only "good thing" will be because Malta has been added to the places not to travel to, insurance shouldn't be a problem. We initially thought that we would just postpone to September, but the way things are going we'll probably go for a refund. You wonder how many of the hotels, travel operators etc will survive the hit of no tourists for potentially a full season? As Gary says, places like Malta rely on tourists. I think at the moment being at an age heading towards the "at risk" groups, our priorities are to keep safe and hopefully be able to sort of "tread water" with our business to get us over the next few difficult months.
