Rob's 59 and Half Birthday bash

On a beautiful Summer's evening, the sunning Villa Gallini in Pissouri was the venue for a pool/BBQ party to celebrate Rob's 59 and a half birthday party (its to cold in Winter, on his actual birthday.)

As the sun set, the guests enjoyed wonderful food (provided by Bob and Lyn) and some great music (provided by Mark and phil.)  Then there was the Karaoke singing from the sublime to the ridiculous, but all in good fun with lots of laughs.

A Hillview Quiz night and a George Michael tribute.

Friday meant another visit to The Hillview restaurant for Alan's dinner quiz night. Although our team "Under Pressure", once again  did not trouble the leader board, we all had a good evening with plenty of laughs and a lovely meal.

Mandy joined the Ladies of Pissouri as they enjoyed the George Michael tribute act performed by Andrew Browning. A decent crowd enjoyed  a night of music and dancing.

The Unseasonal weather continues in Cyprus  as Pissouri was hit with two days of downpours of rain, most unusual for mid June.

A trip to Aphrodite's Rock brewery

On a muggy Saturday morning we joined a coach full of friends for a visit to Aphrodite's rock brewery. The journey to the brewery which lies North of Paphos took about 50 minutes.
We started off our journey in Pissouri just as a few drops of rain fell but by the time we got to Paphos we hit a downpour of rain as flood rain passed the bus.

 We all enjoyed a pre lunch glass or two of beer as the thunder and lightening cracked around us. After very good lunch we settled down in the beer garden as the sun came out.

Cari's First Birthday and resurfaced roads

Our Gorgeous God-daughter celebrated her First birthday with a short family break to the Welsh coastal town of Tenby. Jude was on hand help blow out the candle.

The main village roads we completely resurfaced this week, it caused a few problems but the work was badly needed as the surfaces were in a pretty poor state of repair.

Early Heat, A birthday Lunch and New T-shirts

Unusually hot weather (for May) has arrived in Cyprus with temperatures climbing up to the 33 C.

This type of weather is more associated with August and s quite uncomfortable.

On Sunday we popped over to the Ampeli restaurant in Pissouri bay and bumped into Lisa B who was celebrating her birthday by having lunch with her family.

After a superb souvla lunch were were lucky enough to try the delicious birthday cake.

We took a trip down to the Pissouri Cafe bar and the owner, Alex, handed out some staff  T- shirts to us. Although none of us were very keen to start our bar duties.

Mystery Tour

On a warm Summers day we joined a coach load of Pissourians for this year's Mystery Tour. Our first stop of the day was The Brittania bar in Paphos for a English breakfast.

We the visited Kalogirou candle workshop to see how all the different candles were made and watched them being hand painted.

Our next port of call was, was the Tsangarides winery in the village of Limona, we took a tour of the winery before tasting six wines accompanied by cheese.

We then moved onto the village of Fyti to visited a weaving museum and a well earned cold drink in the local taverna.

We then headed for our lunch stop but our coach got stuck on a narrow county road and we all had to disembark and walk around 2 kilometers to rejoin the bus.

We finally made it to the Sa Buneri Taverna that overlooks the Evretou reservoir and enjoyed a late lunch before heading home.
