Come on folks. There must be quite a few of you who have been this year but haven't posted any feedback. Those of us not fortunate enough to have visited this year need your stories to see us through the winter! Bob
Know what you mean Bob, nothing posted since 'd' posted his review on his June holiday (and not forgetting Tre's lovely report just prior) . Still we all have Dennis' daily blog to look forward to if he is doing one this trip. :-)

We got back yesterday (our 15th visit) and I'm not one to write reams about everywhere we went and everything we did. It was just for one week this time so we had a lazy few days on the beach, a couple of trips into town. Went to our favourite place to eat in Troulos, Ratatouille. We had a good meal at Varelli's too. We love the Zahora taverna on the beach for lunch and the guy who runs it also takes the bed money, he's usually a pleasant enough bloke. Dino's in town is a favourite place to eat too. We gave Roula a hug as she lost her lovely husband this year. She's looking tired and misses him a lot. We didn't go exploring other beaches but probably will next year when we go for two weeks again. At the beginning of the week it was very hot and took some getting used to but it steadied down to a comfortable 29 degrees as we left. We had one storm around 6pm last Monday or Tuesday with fantastic flashes of lightening to watch but it soon cleared up. Sorry if I don't have any fantastic tales to tell. Oh I nearly forgot,
something happened that has never happened before. Last Thursday me and hubby were in the sea on Troulos beach, which we love to do. He was standing up to his armpits in the sea and spotted some fish, quite some distance away, leaping out of the water and moving in one direction. Then some more appeared a bit further to our left. I was about waist high in the water and saw the fish jumping aswell. Nothing new in this I hear everybody say. Well what happened next was totally unexpected as literally hundreds of fish came towards me leaping out of the water by at least two feet and throwing themselves back and heading to shore, but I was in front of them. I could see the flashes of silver from underneath them and it was raining fish. I screamed and got out as soon as I could as I didn't like the thought of fish landing on me. Someone suggested that maybe the bigger fish were after the smaller fish and they were trying to escape by coming to shore. Then as soon as they had come, they went. Phew was I glad but never seen that before. So if you were on Troulos beach on Thursday and heard someone scream it was me, sorry if I disturbed your sleep/book etc.
