A Golden coincidence

Back in the UK, Rob's cousin Lisa attended a celebration event where she met one of the GB Olympic hockey (Gold Medal) players, Sam Quek.  Unbeknown to Lisa, Mandy's niece, Tanith, was also at the same event. We found this only because they both separately posted on Facebook.

After reading their posts we contacted them via Facebook to tell them both that they were in the same room, they soon found each other....the wonders of modern Technology.

Havana Nights at The Bay Bar and Hatching Turtles.

The Pissouri Bay bar was the venue for a Cuban themed "Havana Nights". The  music was provided by Yamaya Son and we enjoyed Cuba libres, Mojitos and Cuban cigars. There was also some impressive moves on the Dance floor.






























On the weekend, local volunteers gathered on Pissouri beach to ensure that the baby turtles made it safely to the sea. Over 100 hatchlings were helped on their way to the water's edge.

Trout for Lunch, the Junction Cafe and Race for Life

On a warm Saturday morning we drove 45  minutes up into the Troodos mountains to the village of Phini. We spent some time exploring this picturesque village before heading over to the local tavern for lunch. The area is well know for its trout, so we ordered the house special of trout and thoroughly enjoyed the meal washed down with a glass of wine.




























On the way home we saw yet another  fire in the distance of the Troodos mountains.



On Sunday we popped down to the newly opened Junction cafe in Pissouri bay for Brunch, we wish them well with their new venture.


On Sunday afternoon in South Wales, Sarah completed the "Race for Life" challenge and her lovely boy was waiting for her at the finish.
