The Skopelos Scramblers’ last walk was a gradual climb up to the Agia Marina spring. The weather was perfect for walking, dry but not too warm. Fourteen enthusiastic walkers, including two four-legged friends, eventually reached the spring to be greeted by a beautiful horse that was enjoying the water there. Muriel spread out the famous blue checked tablecloth in the wonderful surroundings of the Ag Marina churchyard for the shared picnic. They were pretty reluctant to set off again but eventually made their way down to Mili village and back to the archaeological site, heading for a well deserved coffee in Skopelos town.
This Sunday’s walk is to the ancient Sendoukia tombs. The starting point for walkers from Skopelos will be Carrefour supermarket at 10.30am. They will then drive to the Chestnut Tree junction in the centre of island, where the walk will begin. As usual there will be a shared picnic on the itinerary.
All are welcome to join the Scramblers. Many different nationalities make up a usual Sunday group and this week they are expecting Greek, English, French and, of course, Scottish walkers in the mix.
