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!

But here comes the interesting fact: 36% of the island, the Turkish north, is the self-proclaimed Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (with Turkey’s support and sole recognition, of course). But then again…”

What do you think? Check it out and let me know….
