In this post I show some images from my recent walks with my dog in various Nature parks here in Malta. Thanks to Fanny, I’ve discovered amazing sceneries on this tiny island in the Mediterranean.
The greenery, the narrow paths and the deep slopes of Victoria Lines.The barren landscape along the sea in Pembroke.The steep clay slopes in Ghajn Tuffieha.Together we have made adventurous climbs in Il-Majjistral Nature Park.
Besides Fanny, I also photograph the variety of wild plants and insects found in our nature, more of that will come in a later post. And don’t worry, Fanny is visible also in the first image, but you have to look closely.
Tulips are so beautiful, in all stages…
…from flowering…to the end.

The realistic lifesized painted-bronze work by J. Seward Johnson Jr. depicts a man about 30 years old carrying a boy, about 4-years old on his shoulders. The boy has taken the man’s hat and is about to put it on himself as the man’s left arm reaches for the hat and his right hand grips the boy by the right ankle. Behind the work is a mural of a carousel, leaving the impression that the pair are at a fair or carnival.

Above is part of where I walk with Fanny every morning. The rocks along the Mediterranean stretch from Sliema Pitch to Balluta Bay. It takes more or less an hour and a half back and forth if we walk pretty fast, including stops when we meet other dogs..I love the scenery and Fanny jumps with joy along the rocks.
In the weekends we take the car to Ta Qali National Park where nature is completely different. This is a large recreation area with walkways and a wide range of plants and trees as well as animal species.
We are not far from the rocks near home but we are in a completely different scenery.
Here we find lots of greenery and beautiful plants, many of which I’ve never seen. This is part of nature’s diversity on this small island in the Mediterranean Sea.

Fanny, really enjoy being in nature among the green grass and all white flowers. Still we can´t have her loose but with an eight meter long leash she can run quite freely. At least when she´s wise enough to run in a circle. Next Friday we will take her to school to learn more about behavior, obedience and much more…
The Golden Anniversary Pedestrian Bridge Project at the Kuching Waterfront
is almost completed.
It lights up in different colors at night, is very curvy, which makes it much longer to walk from one end to the other and the pillars are shaped like a Hornbill. Kuching is located in Sarawak and is called “Land of the Hornbills”. I really do looking forward to be a pedestrian on that bridge when it´s completed.

An unusual rock formation found in Bako National Park in Borneo, Malaysia.
Looks a bit like the profile of a face and I like the different colors of the stone.
These are from the same place, and I have shown them before. But still, so unusual and unique.

The Marsovin Summer Wine Festival in Hastings Garden, Valletta, took place last weekend.Buy a glass and then you can taste different kinds of wines while enjoying the sunset. The real Wine Harvest Festival here in Malta takes place in August in Upper Barrakka Gardens in Valletta and shouldn’t be missed.
Tröttnar nog aldrig på att vandra runt i de äldre bevarade kvarter som finns kvar i Stockholm. Bakom varje hörn ligger ofta ännu en gata gömd värd att upptäcka. Som här, vad finns att se utmed Långa gatan på Djurgården ?
Tycker den påminner om en snurra på skaft av plast jag hade som barn. Den här, av naturen skapad, snurrar inte alls men är heller inte gjord av plast. Ett snurrigt inlägg, en vimsig tolkning, det får räcka, till ett snurrigt tema.
