Who has a walking stick?

‎Jessica Aidley is on holiday on Skopelos now and her friend cut her leg badly when she put her foot down a hole while watching the ‘Oxi’ celebrations last Monday. She has 14 stitches in it and needs to protect it while we travel via Skiathos and Athens back to London. Does anyone have an old walking stick they no longer need which she could use to protect herself when moving through groups of people?

Aquafit season has ended

Skopelos Aquafit season has now come to an end. It has been a very successful four months of water aerobics in Anofli partments and Dyonissos Hotel and Muriel would like to thank both establishments for giving the group the exercise opportunities.

It is the 7th season at Hotel Dyonyssos so Muriel would like to thank people returning to the sessions every year, local residents and friends and hotel guests. This year they had children demonstrators who let the regular guys see how quickly The Tour de France Cycle Race team could cross the pool and back.
