After exploring the beautiful Azure Window and Dwejra Bay on the island of Gozo (click here to see pictures), my friends and I were dying of thirst and ready for a shady rest.
Janet led us to the picturesque Inland Sea, an idyllic spot of craggy cliffs, pretty little boats, and clear water just a short walk from Dwejra Bay.
We found water-side seats under spreading umbrellas and sat back with icy drinks to rest, visit and soak in the view.
We watched boats emerge from a tunnel through the rocks, and wondered where on earth the tiny green door in the cliff led to.
I am particularly fond of brightly colored doors, and these boat sheds delighted me. Wouldn’t it be fun to have your very own tidy little fishing boat painted in turquoise, orange and purple hidden away in a shed with a bright blue door?
The pale stone buildings of Gozo can be blinding under the harsh glare of the sun, and the vivid hues of paint they use bring much-needed relief to the eyes and cheer to the heart.
We visited contentedly and sipped our drinks as we watched boaters and divers arrive, hoping fervently the shorts perched precariously on this boatman’s bottom would stay where they belonged. To our collective relief, they did. 😉
All too soon our drinks were drained and it was time to leave this idyll and head into town for a bit of shopping at a Gozitan craft village.
What is your favorite body of water to rest by?
