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.

“Miss Kathy’s” last full day in Cyprus


This could quite possibly be the last visit our friend Kathy will make to Cyprus before she heads off back to UK and then onwards to pastures new.

These are yesterday’s memories:

We went to Lady’s Mile Beach in the vain hope we may catch the Red Arrows in flight practising their rolls over the bay – sadly, it was not to be…

Dammit! I wasn't planning to swim - but I wanted to...

Later in the afternoon, we took a short walk around some of the streets near to Limassol castle while we had a look for a place to eat with our other friends, Helen and Dave. But first we got waylaid by views of the sea from the car park…

Anyway, back to the old streets of Limassol:

The meal was okay although I doubt it will be on our recommended list of restaurants. We found the waiter/manager a little too pushy even though we informed he we weren’t tourists and that we have been living in Cyprus for a number of years. Then at the end, he hovered over us to see if we would leave him a tip which was not a good move on his part. Needless to say, he didn’t receive one and then “tutted” when he opened the bill to find there was nothing there…

However, we did find a very nice wine which I believe we’ve had once before at Vinarte Wine Bar in Limassol, but the name of it escaped us. Now we have a photo of it for posterity: a white, dry wine made from Xynisteri grapes by Tsiakkas Winery in Pelendri (Pitsilia region of the Troodos foothills) of Cyprus.
