The winter rains are on us with a vengeance now, which is good news for the reservoirs. It is fascinating to see once-dry areas become raging torrents, so we took our cameras out to see what nature had in store for us...
We had heard that Tala Monastery had a nice surprise with regards to seasonal waterfalls, so were setting off to have a look. We wanted to go via Akoursos, as we knew there would probably be one there too. So we took the back road from Polemi to Kathikas with a view to driving down to Akoursos from there. However, on the way it soon became apparent that there were surprises in store closer to home.
What amazed me about this torrent is that it was so localised. The water isn't coming from distant hills, it is just from the surrounding fields.
The sheer quantity of water that has landed on Polemi over the last few weeks is spectacular. I've lost count of the amount of times we've had to let water out of the pool recently.
People were coming to admire the new river.
Destination: Adonis Baths?
I wonder where that will end up? Thinking about it, it probably runs into the valley that Adonis Baths is situated on.
