An island has lots of ships. An island with a protected deep port has all kinds of ships. Here are some samples. I can't say what they all are. But the top one is of the Malta Navy from our tour boat (whose name eludes me, but I will eventually report it here as it was a very nice boat). The second is of a giant yacht moore at Birgu, The 3rd was taken from our boat while we were on the open sea of a cargo ship coming out of the harbor. 4th: Malta can take large cruise ships. The last two are views of the harbor at Birgu (French Creek, I think...but I can never keep them straight).
