Because, that's pretty much what we did. There wasn't a whole lot of anything going on during this particular holiday. I mean, we did go to the mountains one day, and on our way out, we hit Tomb of the Kings, a fairly stunning archaeological site. But, at the end of the day, we were resting, and rest we did.
So, we'll start with a bit of beach romping.
This particular beach was just a short walk from the house. So if Jeff needed to spend an afternoon working, it was easy enough for the children and me to scuttle down there and have a nice time, say, conquering an island.
Or building a sand fortress. And practicing your long jump over it.
The beach, as you can see if you peer into the distance, isn't exactly a pristine, clean sort of beach. There was a fair bit of trash washed up on the sand. We're not picky folk, though, when it comes to a bit of sand and and island, so it worked for us. Your mileage may vary.
The "public" beaches, with restaurants, etc, are well kept, so please don't get the wrong idea that Cypriots don't take proper care of their beach areas. But this was a bit of a cove on a less traveled part of the island during the off season, so we certainly didn't turn our noses up at a few old detergent bottles and a bit of flotsam.
The water was cool, so although there were a couple snorkeling while we were playing, there wasn't a lot of "swimming" from our crowd. Wading out to the island and back was about the extent of it. But, not an issue. Fun was had by all.
And when the light began to wane, we headed back to the house. To enjoy the sunset,
and then a little lightening show.
Next: Goat or Mouflon?
