Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

Pay Day, Lunch at the beach and a visit to see friends. A great day!

Yes, today was a GREAT DAY!

Clem went and had a couple of hours at the auction house while I caught up with some admin on the home pc, paid a few poker players and checked some emails on my works laptop…

Ok, nothing too “great” in that I hear you say….

But, today was Pay Day. The 10th of any month is always a good day!

Not only that, Clem decided as it was such a nice day when he returned that we should go and have lunch at the beach – so off we headed to Curium/Kourion beach. We went to our favourite beach restaurant “Kourion Beach Restaurant”. Well what else could it be called?

We split a large cold Keo while we decided on the menu. I went for a halloumi and lountza toasted sandwich but Clem being Clem who is always hungry, plumped for a mixed kebab with chips, salad and pitta 😀

Meanwhile until the food arrived, out came Amelia Peabody (one of the Egyptian murder mystery series) paperback book and the Istanbul Puzzle on my Kindle.

Yep, it was a GREAT DAY! People were in the sea, a couple at the side of us were in swimwear while we were in jeans, t-shirt and trainers. Photos were definitely on the menu…..

Eventually, when we were fed and watered (a bottle of water to wake us up) we managed to drag ourselves from our beachfront position and make our way back to the double cab and headed off to see our friends Helen & Dave for a catch up. We hadn’t seen them since before we went on holiday to Malta so it was good to see them both.

Even Ruby the rottweiler had a GREAT DAY too!
