4 images from coast of Gozo
This February I took part again in a SPEAR activity, this time on a boat trip around Gozo. I and the Environmental Science teacher, Konrad Pirotta, together with 9 students, left Cirkewwa at 8.45 a.m. on a lancja. The sites we were focusing on are Xlendi Bay and Dwejra Bay.
The four photos here testify the marvellous coastline of Gozo. The first photograph shows one of the watch-towers built during the period of the Order of St. John (1530-1798) to guard the islands against possible invasions from the Turks. The fourth photo shows one of the many semi-submerged caves and caverns along the Gozitan coastline. The second photo shows the Dwejra "Window", while the third photograph shows the Fungus Rock (known in Maltese as Il-Gebla tal-General, The General's Rock).
