Yes, we set off to the north on our bicycles after taking in the harbour area with its tourists and ships taking them to see the cave and Cleopatra’s beach – only accessible by ship!
I felt good and relaxed as I entered the 66th year after my mother did lots of breathing in and out to make sure I entered the world. I was born at the family home, as was my brother and two sisters. I think the trend to birth in a hospital came after the founding of the NHS in 1947. I spent most of the day exploring the west bay on a bicycle.
Here are some photos showing the beauty of the coast, and the one with the seats and tables was taken at the stop for some food and a few beers to celebrate my birthday. Superb views and memories.
