what a great day, the sun has made an appearance and the island has taken on that lovely feeling of summer being around the corner. Our day started with yoga at the school, our instructor has tailored the class to suit our various abilities and although an avid runner I’ve found the class challenging enough and really enjoyable.
Our afternoon walk was led by Tracey, Pam and Helen and started at the byzantine style church of Ipapanti. Maria Grammatikou joined us and was able to tell us the history of the church, her family home is in this particular area. We visited the mystical spring that lies behind the church and heard the age old fable of the icon that was found there that then led to the church being built close by.
We made our way to the Kastanida cliffs taking in the stunning scenery and came back down into Lakka passing the Venetian House.
What better way to end a walk than enjoying a coffee in the sunshine, thank you to Anna and Maria at Seriani bar for your hospitality and to Anna from the local Cava for her delicious home made pastries and halva.
