Village Fire and a weather Warning

A nasty fire broke out on the scrub land on the edge of the village. Several fire engines from the Episkopi garrison turned out and soon had the fire under control. Thankfully there was no one injured and no damage to property.

The island of Cyprus has been issued with a weather warning for the next few days. "It appears likely that a strong baroclinic / frontal zone will establish across central Europe and result in a very (extremely) strong temperature contrast between western and eastern Europe. More than 10 °C colder than average to its west and possibly nearly 15 °C warmer than normal to its east side. "

Melunda Beach and Bonamare Sunset

On the final day of their visit to Cyprus we drove over to Melunda beach which lies just East of Pissouri, we did a bit of sun bathing and snorkeling. We then made a daft video of Lisa and Andrew's visit to Cyprus.

It was then time to head to the airport, but not before stopping off at Bonamare beach bar for a bite to eat and to watch a gorgeous sunset.

Lady's Mile Beach and Michael's Steakhouse

In an effort to Relax after a long weekend , we made our way over to Lady's Mile beach which lies just outside the Port of Limassol. The seawater at this time of year is still warm and a pleasure to swim in.

We had lunch in the Oasis restaurant which consisted of a couple of impressive salads. We spent the afternoon lazing in the sunshine.

In the evening, Lisa and Andrew walked down to Micheal's Steakhouse in Pissouri. They were both very impressed with the quality of the food and the standard of service.

Sweden, Pissouri Beach and the Hillview

Mandy flew out of Larnaca to Stockholm (Sweden ) to visit her two sons. The first thing  Mandy noticed on arriving in Sweden was the severe drop in temperature, which meant she had wrap up in Winter clothes for the first time in seven months, quite a shock to the system.

Lisa and Andrew spent the day down at Pissouri beach and hired a wave runner to explore some of the coast line.

In the evening they invited Rob over to The Hillview restaurant for a meal, the food and service, as always, were excellent. After dinner Lisa and Andrew got to taste Zivania for the first time, an acquired taste.
