Quel contraste entre le bateau moderne et le château.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Martine!
Looks like a storm is approaching.
Ginnie Hart: A "perfect storm," Michael. Good time to be in the harbor.
A great view across this harbor... I love those high, protective walls!
Ginnie Hart: Everything about this place is "great," Elizabeth. Maybe one day you and Frank can be there while Mick is also there?

An impressive view, Ginnie...I think the beer would taste even better if I was looking at this through the bottom of the beer glass.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, Ray. You can see a similar view from many places in Valletta while looking across the harbor to the Three Cities.
i could use one of those Ginnie... but i would need a bigger lake to launch it....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Just stick to your good boat, Peter, and you'll be just fine. HA!

Yikes - just look at that super-yacht!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Chris. A bit out of my league! smile

Now I have to say that the boat is just a little over the top for even me; I'd like something just a little smaller so that I could get it into smaller anchorages. I love the fort pictured against that wonderful sky.
Ginnie Hart: A bit over the top for me, too, Alan. Man alive! It makes you wonder who could be that important! It certainly was a beautiful day....
What an impressive view Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Almost every view from Valletta is impressive, Richard. I highly recommend a visit.
I love Malta I visited in 1999. Beautiful place and boat. Nice framing
Ginnie Hart: We loved Malta, too, Marie. I call it one of Europe's best-kept secrets. Thanks.
That boat clearly belongs to someone who knows how to avoid paying taxes grin
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'm sure you're right, Bill.

they are not THAT high lol they better hope Al Gore is wrong about ocean levels rising!! great picture tho!!
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure we'd all like a look inside, Elaine, but I'd rather have a rowboat or a kayak. HA! Thanks.
Lovely old building, a fort I presume, and one of those toys men get when they have more money than they know what to do with!
Ginnie Hart: Sigh upon sigh, Brian! (sigh)
some solid fortifications there, Ginnie. i like the sleek looking vessel there but would hate to pay the fuel bills!
Ginnie Hart: Everything here is very nice to look at, Ayush. But to maintain it...not my cuppa tea!

This is only for the rich and famous harbour.... I love the sky and the yellow of the lime-stone..
Great picture.
Ginnie Hart: Only for the rich and famous, indeed! (sigh) But that's okay...because I'm so happy in my own little "castle" here where we live. smile

Both have good lines, the boat and the fort.
Ginnie Hart: Fit for each other, I think, Louis?!
that's quite a yacht...
Ginnie Hart: A bit more "quite" than I'd want for myself, Larry. HA!
Great shot, Ginnie - wonderful sky!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Tom.
I think there are more superyachts in Monte Carlo. wink
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, LC, I'm sure of it. But I don't think Malta sees it as a competition. HA!
Wow. That is a beautiful angular building.
Ginnie Hart: Have you thought about putting Malta on your Bucket List, Michael????
Oh my...that yacht! Gorgeous skies!
Ginnie Hart: A bit over the top for me, Robin, but I'd still love to see what it looks like inside. HA! Thanks.
cadrage extra! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, JP.

It looks impressive and the sky is so dramatic smile
Ginnie Hart: I bet you and Hubby would LOVE Malta, Cherry. I highly recommend it.
Beautiful place. Have a nice day
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, Oscar.
