Champagne and figs

This weekend we enjoyed a meal with friends Mike and Steph and opened a nice bottle of champagne given to us by a mutual friend who we helped construst a BBQ "bunker" in his garden.

On Sunday, Rob joined Theo down at his farm on the outskirts of Pissouri. Theo grows grapes, figs, pistachio and almond nuts, on a warm day, we picked some grapes and figs.

Paphos beer festival.

This week Rob passed his PADI open water SCUBA course, a big thanks to Instructor, Steve, who guided him through and showed great patience, especially in such hot conditions.

We organised a coach from Pissouri to Paphos harbour for the 4th Beer festival. There was a good turnout and friendly atmosphere for this annual event.
We were a little disappointed with the lack of variety of food available and the type of music blasting out from the huge speakers. On the plus side, we enjoyed the live band and the impressive firework display.
