Autumn Day in Paphos and Hill Racing

On a beautiful Autumn Sunday morning we drove down to Paphos harbour, as we parked the car we could here the sound of live music coming from the harbour, so we made our way over and listened to a superb band playing Greek music.

The harbour was a hive of activity and the cafes and restaurant were doing a roaring trade. We made our way toward the breakwater where the local fishing boats moor up and watched the fishermen repair their nets.


Meanwhile back in Pissouri village the "Bay road" was closed off to allow a day of Hill racing.

Fish and Chips and Land slippage.

We made our first visit to the Village's New Fish and chip restaurant, the interior has been designed by the owner, Steve, and looks very impressive.
The menu was extensive and the food was delicious.

The Plaice in the Square and a Super Yacht in Limassol.

On a mild Sunday Morning we made our way over to Limassol Marina where the Super Yacht "Queen K" was berthed. Sadly we could not get close enough for a good look at it, but even from a distance it looked very impressive.

The Queen K was built in 2004 and its length is 72m/ 238 ft, she can reach a maximum speed of 18 knots and cruises comfortably at 16 knots. She has a range of 5000 nautical miles from her 250000-litre fuel tanks.

Pissouri's latest restaurant, A Plaice in the Square, has just opened in the centre of the village, we wish Steve and his staff all the best for the success of Pissouri's newest enterprise.

Summer Ends and Little Plates

The Summer weather came to a shuddering end on the 22nd of October when a huge electrical storm swept over Cyprus and lasted for a number of hours turning roads into rivers and sweeping huge amounts of debris into the village.

On Friday evening we made our way over to Limassol with Viv and Tony to visit the Ta Piatakia (Little Plates) restaurant. The food is actually served on little plates and is a kind of Tapas. The food was very good and the owner/chef, Roddy Damalis , made us feel very welcome.
