The stories of my life on a little island in the middle of the Mediterranean sea ... and my occasional adventures beyond these shores.

A Walk on the Cliffs

Recently we drove to the small village of Dingli to take a walk on the cliffs. It was almost sunset and although the view from up there is always great, at sunset it is phenomenal. The cliffs rise 300 metres above sea level and provide an excellent look-out post. All you can see, for miles around, is the deep blue Mediterranean sea. It's really gorgeous up there, especially at this time of year when all the nooks and crannies in the rocks are filled with wild flowers. The silence is only broken by the occasional song of a bird. It was quite chilly up there. The wind was gusting and blowing so we did not really walk too much.

It is hard to try and describe the beauty of the place in words. So I'll just say that it is a place where to ponder, a place to pray, a place to write poetry or a place to play. In short it's a great spot in this crowded and noisy world we live in where you can be alone with your thoughts and with yourself. I always feel as free as a bird up there. The only thing that's missing is a pair of wings and I would be able to soar even higher above the water. As it is, I have to be content with walking on the edge of my world.

Going back to the was spectacular... so I am sharing a few photos with you.
