A few from the trip.....

                                 The entrance to Mdina
Its really beautiful and the residents are lucky to live there
                               Mdina is famous for its glass
                     Its really beautiful.. We bought a lovely vase for our kitchen..
                                The streets were fascinating...
                                     On one doorstep...
                                  Above many doors they had these lovely name plates..
                                All the streets had these lovely street signs
                                               Look at the view from this house..
                                On the street corners there are gorgeous statues..
                                              Inside their church...
                                Now  onto Mosta...
                                               Mosta Dome from Mdina..
                                                         During the war a bomb was dropped on Mosta Dome and it went right through the dome and landed in the aisle during a service, The bomb did not explode. Wow..
                                            It went through here..
                                  A replica of the bomb..
                              It is very beautiful...
                               A close up of outside..
                                       Now the lovely fishing village of Marsaxlokk
                                 So many colourful fishing boats. They have eyes painted on the front so they can see during a storm..


                                       A close up of the eyes..


                    Hope you enjoyed as little look .. Hugs to all Carol xx

What a fabulous trip--love the architecture and that glassware! Wow!

Kari said...

So fascinating and so gorgeous! I love the way the lanterns extend out over the lanes which are mysterious and welcoming at the same time.
Beauty everywhere one looks.
Aren't the little eyes on the boats
something! Such a charming custom.
And a friendly kitty makes the whole
day complete.
We hope you have more photos to
show us!!!
p.s. If one had any doubts, that
bomb incident would certainly clear
them up.

That is a really beautiful town/city. The Human sure likes the look of those glass pieces and thinks you were very restrained if you stopped at one item!

Hi! We stopped by to let you know the pink ribbon pin arrived. We got it for Mom cause she is a breast cancer survivor. She loves it. Thank you for donating to help Tweedles in memory of your beautiful Ginger Jasper

What a beautiful get-away with so much history and elegance. Thanks for sharing. Even the kitties are striking. What language is inherent there? I wondered because of the city names.
