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.

Photo Diary: A Day in Limassol

Sooo, if you’ve been following my Facebook page you may already be aware we’ve had family visitors over the last few days staying with us in sunny Cyprus during their whirlwind tour of Europe from the bright lights of Sydney, Australia.

Tom and Lizi came to us for 6 days after spending a week in cold and wet UK and were pleased to feel a bit of a bit of warmth on their bones before heading off on the next leg of their journey to Paris.

Here’s a selection of photos from Limassol town on Friday 15 November 2013:

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. If you like my photos, you can see more of them on Flickr (Thulborn-Chapman Photography): and don't forget to check me out on Twitter too - you can find me: @CyprusPictures aka Fylde Coast Musings Enjoy!
