If you want to know more about the history of shipbuilding on Skopelos you can come to the Xenia building (opposite the playground) at 19.00 hours on Sunday.

Road works ahead

In Panormos road works will start to lay these pipes underground. Perhaps they will be part of the sewage system? Word has it that the sewage from Panormos will now be pumped to Elios and treated there.

And on the Agnontas road going up to Panormos these enigmatic markings appeared on the road. Maybe part of some new works that will get done?

The photos are from Mike, thank you!

Paradise regained

paradise 2As our recent photo from Robert showed, Limnonari beach is returning to something like normal after the disastrous weather event of last September.
The drainage pipes channeling the winter water course into the sea have been placed back in position, a new roadway has re-connected the further O Tomas taverna to the road, and most of the stones that were washed up on the beach have been cleared away. And as our photos show, folks are flocking back to what is many people’s favourite beach. Both images expand with a click.paradise 3

Scramblers picnikThe 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.

Sendoukia graves
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.

For further information, or if you need transport to the meeting point, phone Muriel Dunlop on 24240 24732.
