Rented a small powerboat and headed with some friends from St Julians up to Comino, the little Island between Malta & Gozo, well known for the Blue Lagoon. Did some lazy snorkeling & freediving, pretty tired from the night before, and the sea was too choppy for a visit to the P-31. But nice as always to be out and enjoy the great weather.

Headed over to Ghajn Tuffieha Bay after work for a chilled evening session of snorkeling/freediving. The sea is plenty warm for a shorty wetsuit, visibility wasn't great, but nice to explore this area filled with large boulders creating plenty of tunnels and little canyons.

A short freediving session at Blue Grottos on Malta on Sunday afternoon. Water temp was nice, probably around 22 C, and the water was reasonably clear despite some waves. All the tourist boats running back and forward to the grottos makes this place feel rather sketchy though, I kept as close to the shore/rocks as possible..

Day-sailing with my new Adagio 27 from home harbour to Brännäset. Initially in the morning very light winds, on the way back in the late afternoon a fresh breeze with some gusts. As I'm still getting to know her, I settled with using the Genua only. Happy with the performance, up to 5 knots close-hauled without main sail is pretty good. After some calibration of the tiller pilot that also worked to satisfaction.

A week in British Columbia, Canada with the lady - Mostly a road trip where we took some loops on Vancouver Island with Tofino as the turning point, around the Rockies via Harrison Hot Springs, Lilooet, Whistler and Squamish.. But we also got some short hikes done as well as a whale/sea-lion safari.. Hope to be back some day..
