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!

Agios Raphael Church, Erimi Village – Limassol

We’ve often driven past a small church on the left side of the road as we make our way towards Curium beach via Kolossi and Erimi villages on the Limassol/Paphos Old Road.

There’s a small gated entrance from the road side but unfortunately, we’ve never been in a position to stop and take photos. But today was different!

We decided to take a trip to the Buccaneer Pub and try out their Special midweek English Breakfast (served 10am till 2pm) at the bargain price of €2.95 for 2 eggs, 2 bacon, sausage, 2 toast, beans, tomatoes and mushrooms.

It was actually very nice! (I’m not a great cooked breakfast fan and generally, I wouldn’t give it the time of day if it’s served after midday). However, this event was a “date” arranged with friends Helen & Dave on my Wednesday afternoon off, so – breakfast it was!

Anyway, I digress…. the church I refer to, Agios Rafael is almost opposite the Buccaneer so once we’d eaten we walked across the road so I could grab some of those photos I’ve been after for many months.

It’s only a small church but very pretty…. almost too pretty, I think?
