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.

Charlotte's Christening

We were fortunate enough to be invited to this Special day to celebrate the Christening of "Lottie". The day started at St. Pauls pillar church in Pahos.
As we approached the church we could hear the sound of a lone piper playing outside this impressive church. 

Lottie was a very happy little girl during the service as she looked over her Mum's shoulder and smiled and giggled at the congregation.

The guests then returned to the Hillview restaurant in Pissouri to continue the celebrations, after a lovely meal , we heard some wonderful heartfelt speeches from the top table.

The guests were then invited onto the dance floor for some traditional Scottish Ceilidh dancing.
