Bighi mid-1960s438 viewsNice shot of St Angelo, Kalkara Creek & Bighi. Interesting to compare this with a Google view. Spent good afternoons at Nigel Vaughan's house (his father was a Surgeon Lieutenant-Commander at Bighi). Wonderful garden with many fruits. Not there now - a marina instead! Google Map.2 commentsIvan

Ghajn Tuffieha Bay 2012453 viewsSee Prefect's earlier pic of Ghajn Tuffieha and his remark about the steps. Not content with that, last time there we hiked to the small cave to the left just below the summit of the plateau, then on to Gnejna Bay. Believe me, those steps were a killer on the way back!1 commentsIvan
