Nice looking boat. I bet that pitting on the stonework is war damage

Picturit: That is quite an interesting link and I even went 'from link to link' to read about the history. I have to say that most of the damage done in the WWII is not visible anymore, most of the damage of the stonework all over Malta is caused by weather, heat, salt air and the soft limestone.

what a magnificent building -and then all the towers and spires - I would like to visit Malta one day - and I could speak English!
This brings back so many fun memories, MLMA. You'd be so proud to own that boat, wouldn't you! smile

What a fine sight. The style of the ship complements the old city very well. Its just the crane that spoils the old world feel to this.
The deep blue of the sky looks so good against the warm colour of the stone Astrid.
Picturit: For a few days it was like the brochures showed, we were so lucky to have that kind of weather at the time we were there.

That massive wall is suffering from salt water sores.
Picturit: Almost everything in Malta is suffering from the weather and salt air.

Lovely boat and fantastic building.

Great contrast between the buildings and the azure blue sky.
A fine boat picture Lady P. This would be good for a calendar
Nice shot, Astrid, Chris beat me to it about the walls.
Picturit: Most of the damage is not visible anymore, these wall are the result of heat, weather beaten, salt air and the very soft limestone.

A lovely sailing vessel set off by some interesting architecture smile
Picturit: We were in awe all the time with what we saw. So many influences by so many rulers over the centuries. Of course the British influence is the latest and that shows the best... they drive on the left side of the road and still have the red phone-booths and the mailboxes round or in the wall.
Astrid.
a wonderful composition. i like the tall, two masts. the sandy tones on the walls are pleasing to me - reminds me of some architectural features in India.
Picturit: Malta is a meting pot of all kind of architecture, cultures. It was ruled by many nations over the centuries and all brought there own unique things and food.

Very interesting wall - and lovely boat, aptly named.
And a very stately boat! I love the shape of the windows in the background!
