6th February - Alethriko dam

Just decided on a walk through to the dam to check things out. Never seen it so full - actually overflowing.

A very full Alethriko Dam... ...and overflowing


15th - 17th February 2022 - Rodon Hotel, Agros

View from our Hotel bedroom Start of the trail
Tough bits Reservoir at the bottom

A couple of days in Agros at the Rodon Hotel. The government scheme makes it a cheaper couple of days and gives the opportunity to check out trails for the upcoming Larnaca Hash Away Weekend.

The group including Bhing...
...and again with Paul

Definitely a well needed rest during the hike, and this is only about a third of the way through.

27th February - Lefkara Dam and Delikipos

One of our picnic days out. This was while we still had some decent weather before the cold set in for a late winter chill (freeze).

1st March - Famagusta and Koukla Wetlands

Day out in the North to Famagusta and the wetlands. Famagusta completely dead - no tourists at all. Managed to find lunch at the Patek Pastanesi. Drove on to see the wetlands but not much was very wet and almost totally devoid of birds except of course the flamingos in the distance.

Old walls of Famagusta more ruins
Old cathedral Julie taken by surprise
Koukla Wetlands... ...still not much water

5th March - Kebabs at Doner Box, Farewell to Ann

An invite was sent out to join us at our regular kebab lunch so that everyone could say farewell to Ann who is returning to the UK. About 50 turned up which was a good few more than anticipated. A great memory for her and a charm bracelet to remember us all by.

Lots of Hashers to say farewell to Ann (Booby Trapper) And the bottom end of the table.

Julie with Paul and of course a few beers
