Day 8 in Cyprus
Yesterday we went on a road trip to the South of the island. First we went to mount Olympic. We had a picnic lunch and the kids played a bit on a playground. Jessica was restless. That was stressing me out. We were being swarmed by ladybugs. I have never seen so many ladybugs. The boys were not happy being covered by bugs. I bet the view from the mountain is amazing at night. I wouldn't mind camping there just to see the stars.
Then we went to the beach. Governors beach. It was very small but beautiful. Juergen went in the water with Sarah. It all seemed fine. Then when she got out of the water she began to scream in pain. We though she had been bitten by something poisonous. It was awful! She cried out in extreme pain! Juergen picked her up and carried her to the restaurant above us. I followed him. We finally found a shower to wash her off. It turned out salt had gotten into the sand fly bites she has (we all have these awful bites). Thank God it wasn't something worse. Jessica on the other had was super content to sit on the rocks and watch a movie on the ipod. I think we could have spent hours there if Sarah hadn't had this bad reaction to the water. Oh well!
Today we go to the wedding.
