Day 11 Sat Up to the glorious sun again ☀☀ Drove to Debenhams and kiosk for a few bits. Passed by to see Andreas at his frame shop who we've known for over 20 years. His daughter, Athina, and our Joe used to play together as babies and now both grown up and working in London! Makes us feel old! Read and relaxed in sun for a few hours. Went round to our neighbours, John and Marilyn, for a pre dinner drink on their balcony. Had dinner at the Italian restaurant Latvinia's at Coral Bay. Fabulous food, good company and great place. Cyprus will always be home after all these years ❤️

Day 10 Fri Guess what - another hot day so relaxed with book. Watched the elections and the Hung Parliament scenario. Mum and I went down to Sea You beach bar for a jazz night but was pleasantly surprised to enjoy fabulous food with 4 different live shows - Irish dancers, rock singers, fire dancer and a super singer. Needless to say I was up 💃. A fabulous night. Shame the latino dancing came on an hour after we left - showing my age??

Day 3 Fri Another relaxing day, finished book. Met Woody later and went to my favourite beach bar Baracas. Sadly our chicken in the salad was more like croutons!!! hard and yesterday's left over meat so we were offered a discount. However, was a great evening reminiscing and we laughed so much. A real tonic. Home to TV but not too much as both tired.
