There are several boat yards along the sea front behind Lidl and the KEO Factory. Access off Franklyn Roosevelt at the junction where the district offices are, Alexandrias St. They are 'out-of-the-way sort of places but accessible.

Now well into my 6 month in Cyprus and my ever lasting honeymoon continues with each day full of joy and pure bliss.
You will be back in a month or two they said !!! London now seems so very distant, do I miss it, do I miss working 60 plus hours a week? NEVER !
Im in a way making up for the many years away from Cyprus, my Paradise Island. Made numerous acquaintances have interacted with hundreds of locals , visitors and foreign nationals, have seen the sun rise more in a few months than i have ever seen in 70 years. It is truly a blessing being here in spite of my immense annoyance at the horrid driving standarts and the terrible noise by idiots on motor bikes.

Fishing has now become a daily event, twice a day , and really has me hooked. Never before have I experienced the intense pleasure of hooking a fish. My local cats have gotten to know me eagerly awaiting at my block entrance for their treats, strange but they seem to recognise my car because they appear just as i pull into my parking space.

Visiting the village is also such a joyful activity, is as if something is pulling me back to my past , my early childhood.
Im looking forward to the first rainfall and the winter, nowhere else does thunder and lightning sound so ferocious.
Being rather fond of karaolous I cant wait to gather some when the rain comes and savour them accompanied by a little zivania.
Getting ready now for fishing, its just after 4am, this lunchtime im visiting a nephew and family for a fish bbq and beer!!

Cats are indeed quite clever and can possibly distinguish different cars by sound: one of ours regularly emerges from the house, at place where she could only have heard the car, as we drive by, and is then ready to greet us when we have turned around and parked. she then takes great delight in climbing in the car, to explore it.

Today marks the completion of my stay in Cyprus for six months, never before have I felt so totally contented, family and friends initially predicted that my ...honeymoon would expire within weeks. Wrong, six months down the road and have yet to regrett a moment on the Paradise Island, six months that have taken in Spring, Summer ans now Autumn, or perhaps still Summer. Gorgeous weather, the best I have experienced for years. Bright and vibrant, each morning as I fish on the Enaerios pier waiting for the most beautiful sight , the arrival of THE King, the glorious Sun.

Have lost count of how many fish i have thus far caught, local cats are now my subservient friends, they just love velonides, mourmourous,kourkounes and other treats.

I must admitt that much of my regular and long standing needs and wants now take second place. Even my wine conaumption has been reduced to 3- 4 bottles a week, diwn almost 50%....
Im anxiously awaiting for the winter to arrive, the first rains and the appearance of wild mushrooms and not least my favourite karaolous.

Met so many people, mostly each day on the pier, my memory with names is very sharp, remembering everyone by name.
May I also say that each day I see beautiful people, women that is, the old boy still has an eye for beauty, .
Will soon be visiting the old village in search of some home made wine, the very best in Cyprus.

I made a concious decision to ignore and not mention again the horrendously stupid driving standards so rampant with practically most drivers, until this afternoon that is. Just when i thought I had seen all of the stupid driving practices my eye caught this as I was waiting to collect my grandson from his English lessons.

A learner driver, clearly identified with L plates and an instructor by his side .
Holding to his ear, guess what !!! A bloody mobile !!! This is definetely one of the worst if not the worst behaviour i have ever witnessed. Presumably his phone rung and what the hell, he answered it.

You've got it all wrong Milti. Driving whilst talking on the phone is part of the test. He was just practicing. :lol:

I thought as much !!! Part of the driving standards curriculum no doubt !!!!
Just for ibformation, since Sunday last I moved to my apartment in Ayios Athanasios, could stand the bloody noice at my Enaerios area apartment, going on untill the early hours of the morning.
This apartment is located high up in a couldesac, so no passing traffic through just plenty cats and dogs. Ideal retirement place.

I hope it’s still within walking distance of your table at that beach bar. It seems like a long time since we quaffed a bottle of red wine there.

I fish daily on the pier next to the Baraki. I just love this spot, after all its where I first learned to swim, in fact this is where I first put my feet in the sea.

Catching fish every day now and have made new ..feline mates in my new appartment.

The views are phenomenally enchanting, can see the whole of Limassol, the sea too, and so peaceful without the horrid cacophony by cars and especially motor bikes.
I have a well maintained rookery including large palm trees, cactus, lavender and many varieties. Gardening has never been a love of mine but I think it soon will be.
