It was Thursday, eleventh March two thousand and ten when my schoolmates and I went to the Simar Nature Reserve at Xemxija. We left school at about eight o'clock in the morning and arrived there at about quarter past nine. From where we stopped with our private, we had a sort two-minute walk to the Simar. First we went to a small hut where we saw a marvellous view of a wetland. Different types of ducks were swimming in it. Anyway, afterwards, in the same hut, we sat on soft mats on the floor and, thanks to a projecter, our ranger Mr. Jason Aloisio, told us about the Simar. He started by telling us that the place is a nature reserve and no domestic animals are allowed here. The Simar is found at the end of Pwales' Valley. This valley keeps going to Ghajn Tuffieha and the Simar Naure Reserve is a few metres away from Xemxija's Bay and to San Pawl il-Bahar. This place got its name from a plant named 'Simar' that in the past was grown here. This beautiful plant is long just like a man. Some fish that grow here are the Kilifish that grows almost only in Malta and the Sallura which its skin feels like soap and lives about seventy and eighty years. A big thankyou goes to our ranger Mr. Jason Aloisio for accepting to be our guide for the outing.
