Between Gozo and Malta’s main island, was Comino Island. We ferried to the island to swim on a hot summer day. Although the water wasn’t deep and I had to keep an eye out for jellyfish, it was paradise floating through the cool aqua sea. The beach was crowded so for a while, I explored the rocks opposite the tiny beach that enclosed the lagoon, aptly named, Blue Lagoon.
The return ferry took a different route where we cruised past rocky coastline with arches over aqua waters splashing against the boat; a fitting end to my final visit to Malta.
Not long after that visit my daughter and husband decided that five years was long enough in Malta and returned to Australia.
