Halloween Mysteries

Published 31st of October, 2019

As it is Halloween I thought I would tell you about the spooky railway we discovered beneath our feet a while back. However, as we haven't been able to find out anything about it we thought it prudent to throw in some ruins for good measure...

Well, we were the other week. I was walking through the water when my feet trod on something I wasn't expecting. I had a bit of an explore, and decided that there was something definitely worth investigating here.

Take The Plunge

Now, beneath the water here there is a lot of sand, so it makes filming quite difficult. I had to wait several weeks before I visited on a day where the water was calm enough to let me film underwater. However, I didn't have my snorkel at the time, so the film I took are a bit of the shot in the dark variety. Incidently, I have published the film separately.

This is what I had felt with my feet. It is an old railway. I originally trod on one of the rails, but felt along the track until I came across some sleepers.

Limni Crystal Hunting

We've long been fans of hunting for exotic crystals in the countryside of Cyprus. Half the fun of it is finding an interesting geological location. But it can also be a lot of hard work.

They won't win any awards, but they are easy to find, and make a change from looking for shells on the beach...

The Church of the Prophet Elias

When you see how small the church is, you will understand why...
