Arrival in Malta...after a great down wind sail from Trapani, Sicily, we entered the harbor of Marsamxette, just north of the old city of Villette...we're anxious to get ashore & do some exploring...as usual, we've timed our arrival for the time when everything is closing for the afternoon siesta...things will start reopening around 5pm, so we'll be off for a walk later this evening.
It's Saturday today, & things are only open 1/2 day, so it was off to the marine store first thing to see if the Iridium phone had arrived...miracle...it did!...next step is to get it installed, which should be hours of "fun"!...meanwhile I'm still doing battle with the cranky washing machine...the bucket may prove to be more "user friendly", but I haven't given up!...It's hot again today & doing things below to try to stay out of the sun durring the middle of the day...an awning to fill the gap between the dodger & the bimini has just hit the top of the to do list!...we're off for an evening walk around the old town & will take more photos of Villette.
