Last Thursday we took an excursion with the tour company we booked with to Gozo. David finds it funny that I get all excited about a trip on a ferry (doesn't matter whether it's France or Isle of Wight, even the Sandbanks chain ferry - I love going on a boat).
After going to a local hotel for lunch then onto another part of the Gozotan coast in Dweera Bay. There the arch made by sea erosion looked almost like Durdle Door and there were boat rides into a cave nearby,
We then visited a fantastic church called St Phillips or Ta Pinu, which was the site of a miracle when a local woman (now buried in the church) heard the words of Mary. The church was not in the middle of a community, it seemed in the middle of nowhere. But people came to share their miracles too, where there is a room dedicated to thanking God for the babies that survived or people overcoming illnesses, having been healed. Amazing to look at. The architecture was pretty amazing too, couldn't help looking at the ceiling.

Here's some of Davids pics
After visiting the main town of Victoria we then headed back to Malta. Again watching the vehicles getting on the ferry and watching it set off.
After this lengthy posting I'll show some pics of our harbour cruise last Friday very soon.
