When Travel sends you Running for Cover - Visit Marsaxlokk

Just a minute .... we go to Malta for the sun?

What's this?  Looks like rain to me and rain it does!

Run for cover

Well, you'd think we'd run for cover.  One of us did most of the time!

First time in the wet

So for the first time we find ourselves in Marsaxlokk in the wet!

No fish market

We had wanted to revisit when the fish market wasn't in full flow, just to get a taste of this fishing village when there was less going on.  So had organised our holiday schedule to visit on the Sunday for the fish market, but then to go on the Tuesday as well.

There certainly was less going on but probably the rain had something to do with it too.

Ah well, get on with it.  It's just rain and in any case warm rain and we'll soon dry off.

We had booked lunch at Terrone one of our favourite eating places.  

A little early so I was persuaded to venture out of my little shelter to get some pics.  Glad I did as wet photos can be as impressive as dry photos so worth getting wet for!
As dark clouds gather above, we go for a stroll.
Ok well that's enough of that!  Time to eat ...
Ooh goodie .... our favourite roasted local sardines on the menu.  Yum.
Oh dear, apparently no sardines. 

The cat looks a little full and comfy! Just saying:)

Slight disappointment for us :(

A delivery!  Maybe some fresh sardines?  Nope fresh herbs, nice to see fresh deliveries though.
So we opted, for me, fresh buffalo milk burrata with grilled local peaches, which was delicious.

 and for Malcolm the risotto de mare, which he said was good too.
But Terrone, can you please tell us why our favourite dish of all time has disappeared off the menu?
 Terrone Special
Anyway we did the great British thing and sat outside to eat.  Majority of the clientele sat inside!  
After all we didn't come to Malta to sit inside did we?

So the moral of the story is, when travel sends you running for cover, go eat and drink!
