Another 4,000 words (read feature article submitted) lighter. This piece about sailing in Malta is very special to me and was it not for it being published soon in Australia’s awesome Cruising Helmsman magazine, I’d share all the unique insider tips, first-ever complete anchorage guide and comprehensive marina overview here with you right now. There are a few other worthwhile pieces that have been published recently, including Provisioning, Sailing the Med and Getting Out There. I’ll also be contributing a monthly piece from this month onwards to Malta’s FIRST magazine on conscious parenting, ecstatic birthing, beautiful pregnancies and everything in between.
So here’s part of reason of lack of updates over the past couple of weeks. The other is spring enthusiasm together with sunshine which make the perfect mix to get on with boat work. Servicing the winches,sealing the new engine panel and buying a new and selling our old outboard has been on the agenda this week. Plus, finding the right thickness for the new front hatch has been an odyssey leaning to nightmare, to say the list.
Our permaculture project is also taking shape, but more than that, always good for a relaxing morning connecting with nature and friends at the Creativity Vortex, a unique and magic community land in Malta’s north. If ever you find yourself on the island, head past Mosta’s big dome and chuck a right just before you hit Zebbieh near Mgarr. It’s worth the detour on the way to the beach!
A truly happy person is the one who can enjoy the scenery while on a detour!
