Winter weather in Cyprus

The weather here in Cyprus  since  the turn of the year has been very poor, day after day of heavy rain, high winds, hail and electrical storms. The one positive  is that the local reservoirs are full. The are also reports of heavy snow on the Troodos mountains.











There was a break in the weather on Wednesday and that gave us chance to walk along Pissouri Bay. There was quite a high sea and the stormy weather made the beach a lot sandier.

Boxing Day 2018

The clouds rolled in over the mountains in Kyrenia and the temperature dropped several degrees making it feel a lot chillier. We once again walked down to the harbour and watched the waves crashing against the breakwater.












One building that did catch our eye was covered in false snow and icicles and even had machine on the roof that threw out snowflakes.










We met up with Mark and Phil for a lunchtime drink at The George on the old town's main Street. In the evening we enjoyed our final dinner at the Lord's Palace after a very enjoyable stay.

Christmas Day 2018

We were up bright and early, had breakfast and enjoyed the warm sunshine around the hotel pool. We then walked down to the harbour, making our way through the Warren of tiny backstreets. We sat on the waterfront and enjoyed a mid morning cocktail......well, it was Christmas Day.























We then made our way back to the Lord's Palace, got changed and headed up to the Sky lounge which had been beautifully decorated. We then enjoyed a superb eight course Christmas Dinner while being entertained by some tremendous live music.

Northern Cyprus

We decided to spend Christmas in Northern Cyprus, on a beautiful day we left Pissouri and headed towards Nicosia. There was a certain amount of congestion at the border but as soon as we crossed over it was a clear run to Kyrenia.


We booked into the Lord's Palace hotel, unpacked our bags and headed up to the hotel's  Sky lounge which has superb views over the town, sea and mountains.





















In the evening we met up with friends from Pissouri, enjoyed a couple of drinks before having dinner in the Spice lounge.
