16th 17th July - Dipkarpaz

As a treat we booked all five rooms at the Castle Karpasia hotel in Dipkarpaz for the weekend. Everybody did their very best to unwind with some swimming, eating, drinking and of course the Red Rock walk at about 11km.

31st August - Shirley Valentine Boat Trip

Roseanne organised a day trip on the Shirley Valentine. Lovely day out from Pernera with three swim stops en route. The last one a bit tricky as there was quite a current running but all got back to the boat safely. Nice lunch at the Blue Spice Restaurant afterwards.

And a few more Beautiful seas - no so the swimmer

1st - 8th September - UK

Back in the UK to spend time with Molly and to attend Amber (Ron's niece) and Jordan's wedding in Wakefield. A normal church service was followed by a very unusual reception at 'This Green Moon'. An outdoor, forestry site set up as natural as can be. Logs for seats, cable drums for tables etc. Luckily the weather stayed fine or the alternative would have been thick mud. Thai food was served then the speeches from Josh, Jordan and the Best Man followed by a Ceilidh band. The ice cream Trolley then arrived followed by pizzas. A great time had by all. Also a couple of walks around the lake at Newmillar Dam.

19th September

There must be a change in the weather as two of our cactus decided to flower. Unfortunately the second one, that had three flowers, only lasted a day.

24th-26th September - Agios Fotios Camping Weekend

It's come around already. Our annual camping week at the cottage. About thirty attendees this year so still maintaining good numbers despite rising ages. As usual we have the B & Bers, luxury campers in the house and intrepid campers out in the open. Great weather, the rain held off though a little chill in the evenings. Massive surprise for us both this year. Just about to head off on the Saturday trail when all attendees stripped of their T shirts. Luckily they had second T shirts on underneath. Lo and behold they had managed to keep a total secret from us that was Ayios Fotios Hash House Harriers T shirts. Organised by Josie (Not Tonight) and designed by Rob (Half Price). Absolutely brilliant and made the weekend.
