Cyprus days 5 and 6

Wednesday we dipped our feet in the Mediterranean Sea, visited the rocks of Aphrodite (where the legend is she walked out of the sea), and explored some archeological ruins.

Clare riding a bike for the first time – she played with a local girl who I believe was speaking Greek. The two of them seemed to communicate pretty well!

Thursday we went on a long drive through the mountains, visiting a few wineries and taverns.

The view from the mountaintop monastery we visited – and yes they made their own wine so we sampled that as well!

Last night we ate dinner at a fabulous restaurant – Seven St. George’s Tavern – there is no menu, they just keep bringing you mezzes until you’re stuffed. All local, organic and primarily vegetarian dishes. Omg so amazing! And Clare was happy because there were several cats wandering around (luckily Clare’s rabies vaccine is up to date 😉 )

Today is our last full day on the island. We are planning on being lazy at the pool. We fly home tomorrow night and will be very sad to say goodbye to Cyprus!

  1. sounds so wonderful Suzie-glad Clare is not afraid of cats …… what a trip you have had-sorry to see it end for you (for me no more pictures)

    1. Thanks Beth and Paulette! I love having a place to record things just for myself even – like a diary! I need to get a new camera…my iPhone isn’t cutting it anymore!

      1. What a wonderful trip and so enjoying all of your pictures. I assume there is plexiglass over the relic. At first I thought Clare could fall in.
