#Gozo 2017 – Day 7 – Flowers and Favourites! :-D

Toes in pool

Usually we would be getting ready to go home right about now so I am really appreciating the extra couple of days.

It’s hot and sunny again today although a strong wind started up around lunchtime. We went to one of my favourite bays this morning, Dahlet Qorrot, which we get to via Nadur. Usually we call this the City of Flags as huge flags fly from every other roof top but this year there are many empty flagpoles which might be due to the high winds.

Dahlet Qorrot is accessed down probably the most verdant valley on the island.

It is a quiet bay with a small area of beach.

I was just getting in to have a snorkel when I was unnerved by a woman telling me there was a jelly fish a little way out. Concerned, because I rarely find they travel alone, I kept a good look out but went in anyway. After all I don’t believe chubby middle aged women are their food goal, though I don’t exactly know what is – small plankton and the like I would imagine. However, I still don’t fancy getting stung by one, I mean, you don’t do you? So I kept peering around for it them (as best as I could with my compromised eyesight) which rather hampered my usual relaxed fish watching but I never saw a thing. In fact, this year I didn’t see one jelly fish during the whole holiday – yay! 😀

The flowers here are beautiful – stunning, vibrant colours that bake in the sun.. I don’t know the names of the plants (other than the bougainvillea) but here are a selection of those around our villa.

I didn’t manage to finish another book today but I’m reading Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall by Luccia Gray and the review will be following on for that one.

Holidays since becoming an independent author are not the same as they once were and mine now wouldn’t be complete without a few challenges. So I decided to set myself some stuff to do, what with the new book on the horizon and all that. Here goes.

List of goals for the week:

Blurb and back matter to write – totally my most important task!

No. of books to read – 12 (okay so I am being ridiculously ambitious here but these are what I have on my seriously-I-have-to-get-to-these-right-now list!)

No. of book reviews to write – 12 (hahaha! Although it does stand to reason)

No of blog posts to write up for lead up to publishing – 14 (based on the list of ideas I’ve had, though not all may make the final cut!)

Keep a diary each day so I can do a series of posts on my return.

Interviews to plan questions for – 5

Clearing emails out of Inbox – no. at start of holiday – 4967!

Day 1Day 2Day 3Day 4Day 5Day 6

Thanks for reading
