Day 4 in Cyprus

One of the things I love most about being on holiday is eating outside. In Scotland you can maybe eat outside a couple of weeks a year (and even then you have to wear a sweater and wrap up.) During the day in Cyprus when we were at the house we would always have a sit down lunch together.
Greek Salad, Chicken Ceasar Salad, Mango Salsa, Pitta Breads make for a very tasty lunch!
In the afternoon on our way to the supermarket we went for a closer look to Aphrodite's Rock. On the beach were hundreds of hearts people had created out of the stones on the beach. It was lovely looking at all the different heart shaped sculptures people had made. All to mark their love at the birthplace of the 'Goddess of Love' Aphrodite.
Not only was Aphrodite the Goddess of Love but also of beauty. Legend says that if, on the night of a full moon, you swim around the middle (larger rock) you will look a year younger for every circle of the rock you swim.... we didn't try it but there were a few brave soles who swam around it.
Nathan and I at Aphrodite's Rock. Nathan went for a swim in the sea but I just had a wee paddle. 
Our group (minus me) Left to right: Caroline and Chick, Catriona and Benji and Nathan. They had all been for a swim in the water by Aphrodite's Rock.
I closer look at some of the heart shaped sculptures people had made on the beach to show their love.
Nathan and I made our own wee heart... pictured with our feet.... it was so lovely being on the beach at this time of day when the sun was setting... there was the most amazing sunsets in Cyprus.
