Kannaviou Countryside

Published 26th of April, 2019

You could be forgiven for thinking that the Ezousa Valley runs from the sea to Episkopi Village. But it continues below Letymbou all the way up to Kannaviou. And guess what? It's just as lovely up there.

The Reservoir

Let's start our exploration at the Kannaviou Dam. Now, you might be growing tired of looking at pictures of dams, so I won't feature too many shots. It does look pretty though. In the far distance, you can just make out a red dot that is Alex. She went to the other side to see if she could find the overspill.

She also had a look around while she was there...

Kannaviou Overspill

Still a metre or two to go before the overspill is breached. Hopefully in the mean time we will have found a better angle from which to photograph it.

Meanwhile, I stayed on the near side of the reservoir. I was following some croaking frogs.

These reservoirs look so, so different when they are full(ish).

Would I rescue some German tourists? The short answers are badly, ish, no and yes. For a more in-depth discussion, read on.
