Ta’ Girgor

Ta’ Girgor. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

I was hoping to write a short post yesterday to wish readers of this blog a Merry Christmas. But between a nice multi-pitch climb in the morning and Christmas lunch with our families, the day flew by. So I’m taking a few moments to write these belated greetings for this festive season. And sharing a photo from an outing last weekend in Żurrieq. The plan was simply to drive down there and walk around to visit a few chapels in the area. (Photos of which I’ll share in due course.) An unexpected bonus was the simple pleasure of walking along the old narrow streets, and the collection of dwellings that line them. Some were clearly unused, and in a state of disrepair. Others were well maintained and a pleasure to look at. This one, in particular, with its bright red door and window frame, and a matching red Bougainvillea (or at least that’s what I believe this plant is), was just so Christmasy. The traditional wrought iron work and a golden wreath finish things perfectly.
