Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

It was a busy day at St Nicholas church when I got to work this morning and not a single place could be found on the nearby car park or on the side road. I had to drive around the cemetery and park by the other exit opposite the small bakery.

As I walked back to the office I cut through the graveyard and it struck me just how peaceful it was considering its’ close proximity to Griva Dighenis busy main road.  When I reached the cemetery exit and the car park again it seemed that everyone was already leaving the church and making their way over the road to the cemetery.

At first I thought it was a funeral procession and wondered who was the cause of such a big gathering but nope, they all made their way back towards their cars clutching some kind of flower or leaves so I  assume it was some kind of  religious ceremony instead.

So, had I arrived ten minutes or so later I could have most likely had a space to park 😉 Never mind, the exercise probably did me good!

Anyway, as I headed back to collect my car after leaving the office for my half day (it’s Wednesday – again) I decided to grab a few photos with my phone – a Nokia 6111. These are from the opposite side to where my last photos were taken. (Link to my previous cemetery post here).
