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!

A new police shift had appeared and were initially reluctant to let us into the port. “No ticket, no come in,” they said. Then the friendly officers who’d kept a watchful eye on the van overnight appeared, greeting us with: “Good morning! Tea?” So in we went and had a quick cuppa with them, before heading off to the van to feed, water and walk the dogs.

Then at round 10.00am, as we’d had no news, we went to the port officer to check whether the computer entry problem (letter O and number zero confusion)…
