Now back on the boat again, close to Gozo is the island Comino, we have already passed it on the way out to Gozo. Now we shall stop here. It's not very strange that this place is called the Blue Lagoon, the blue color comes from the limestone.

This was the last stop on the tour before going back to Sliema. Once again we had a very pleasant day and the weather was with us, however a bit windy.

On the way home we came in contact with two retired Canadian teachers, they had a four week vacation at Malta and was very nice to talk to. This day was also the last time we saw Dave and his wife from Florida staying at the same hotel as we did. He got some extra time because the flight was delayed and he planned to use that time for a walk in Valletta, we hope he had a nice day.

Always when we travel we get some new nice friends, some of them we still are in contact with.
