I’m really enjoying being near the Mediterranean during our stay in Cyprus.
Here’s the beach just south of us in Protaras. A nice, long sandy stretch of beach. When we first arrived in early January it was very cold and stormy. (Note: You can click on any picture to see a larger version.)
It took about a week for the weather to warm up and to see the sun. This little bird was happy to be able to fish in the sea. I think it is a kingfisher. It hovered for a few seconds above the sea, and then dove in beak first to get a fish!
The Med is so interesting. There aren’t huge tidal changes in the sea level, but wind and weather make a big difference in the waves. This is just south of us between Pernera and Protaras. This is our favorite spot along the water. This first picture shows quite a lot of waves, and higher water.
This is the cove closest to our apartment. A day with lots of waves…
The next few pictures show some waves on the local beaches in the area.
We discovered a great little harbor just to the north of us. See the church way behind the boats?
