Evretou Reflections

Published 17th of November, 2019

We went for an early morning walk this morning, and on the way we passed Evretou Reservoir. There was virtually no wind so the waters acted as huge, accommodating mirrors, giving us some beautiful views...

Nice View

All the pictures in this blog were taken at Evretou Reservoir this morning. However, as the pictures speak for themselves, I will relate how the walk went, rather than bore you with purple prose describing what you can see quite clearly for yourself in the photos. If you want to find out more about Evretou, look at the blogs in the links below.

Going Down...

When we set out in the car, I was quite keen to see the area that had been burned behind Polemi. I blogged about it a few weeks ago, before the fire, and I wanted to assess the damage. There has been a lot of speculation about the cause of the recent fires, but I shall talk more about that later.

There was less damage than I was expecting which was nice, so we decided to continue in our car through Drymou, Simou, and drop down to Miliou. I wanted to show our daughter the Sulphur Spring nature trail.

Lakeside

On the way, we passed Evretou Reservoir, and I have to say it was looking stunning. As the trip was supposed to be a Daddy-Daughter walk, I didn't want to spend too much time taking pictures, but I think our daughter could see how pretty the scene looked and gave me some lee-way.

Lots Of Fishermen

There were lots of fishermen about, and I do hope at least a few of them might have seen my previous blog about the litter the leave, and be a bit more careful.

St Anastasia Sulphur Spring

If you have driven from Paphos to Polis along the B7, you will probably have smelled the Sulphur Springs around Miliou as you drove past. It is a bit challenging but is thankfully soon replaced by the smell of the orange orchards which make up most of the surrounding farmland.

Evretou Dam

Ever since we explored the abandoned villages of Evretou and Trimithousa, we have been meaning to return and have a look at the rest of the reservoir.

The Evretou Grave

Last time we walked around Evretou Dam, we observed a solitary grave on the opposite bank, half way up a hill.

He hadn't a record of this one, so I promised to revisit the area and get more information...

Evretou is Cut Off!

Now that the Asprokremmos has well and truly overflowed, we thought we would pay another visit to our old friend Evretou.
