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.

There she blows – ‘erm, I mean flows!


Kouris Dam overflowing on 8 April 2012

Finally, after what seems like weeks of waiting for it to happen – Kouris Dam spilled over and ran down the outlet causing the Kouris River to be seen flowing under the bridge by the Wine Museum between Erimi and Episkopi villages.

The last time the dam overflowed was in February 2004 just a few weeks before we came to live here permanently.

So now it’s gone and done it, this means I shall have to find something else to do on Sundays 🙂

I'm "Shell" or Michele - formerly a UK Expat living in Cyprus since March 2004. Sadly, we had to return to UK in April 2016 due to family illness. We now live "over Wyre" where the "River meets the Sea" at Knott End on Sea, Fylde coast, Lancashire.
