Time for the next episode after Day 4.

This day 5, we made a trip to the north west coast of Malta.

First stop was

#1 The Anchor Bay



#2 It's better known as Popeye Village, a small village. specially built for the Popeye film (1980 with Robin Williams). These days it is in use as a small amusement parc for tourists



#3 Although I could have spent some time there with some photogenic objects, we decided not to go in.


#4 Instead, we just explored the environment, with a beautiful coast line



#5 Some lone hikers



#6 And some fearless cliff jumpers



#7 Most vegetation had had its best time late August



#8 But still some green left as well if you looked well



#9 Our next stop was a bit further south at the west coast: : Gnejna Bay



#10 It had some interesting 'beach houses'



#11 With their private 'jetties'



#12 An amphibious vehicle



#13 Flip flops



#14 Made me wonder, what was first, the rock or the sign??



#15 And back in Valetta at the central busstation, just in time to catch the sunset


More of our evening stroll(s) to follow in a later post

If your still with me, TFL again!

Continued here with Day 6

Great set - I have to repeat myself!

Hard to single out a favorite, but oh, there is one: #13 - well seen!

TFS, Fred!

Really enjoying this virtual tour of Malta, a place I've never been (unless you count a short berthing of our ship the S.S. Partizanka travelling from Trieste when my parents and I, aged 3, migrated to Australia in December 1948).
Until I read the caption I was struck by the quaintness of the organic looking seaside village in ##2 and 3, but being a preserved film set takes away the charm.
My favourites of this set are ##11, 12 and 13.

Thanks Joe. No memories left from being 3 years old I guess?
Fully agree with you on the lost charm.
Scenes with tourist industry like these usually scare me off a bit
