No camera can beat the lenses of our eyes. Truly, hiking in nature offers rare views, which one can admire for the few moments they last, and by the time you take out a camera, they are gone. Such was the case with the several trout we spotted swimming upstream in Kryos Potamos on Saturday 24 April. As if their sighting was not sufficient to help Strollers through the week to come, we were entertained to some more pleasures during the hike at Pouziaris. To cap it all, we enjoyed one of the best meals this club has had in its history, at JR taverna in Trimiklini. Compliments to Antonis and Anna for the photos. Join us on our next outing, when the covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
In Greek mythology Atalanti was a virgin huntress who promised to marry the man who could win a running race against her; Atalanti lost to Hippomenes when she stopped to pick up three golden apples that he dropped in her path. The party on Sunday 18 April at Atalanti trail enjoyed much, much more; summer weather, dense forest, the singing of cuckoos, in a harmonious blend of members who came back after a long absence, regulars as well as first-timers. Compliments to Anna and Yiannis for the photos. Join us on 24 April at Platres https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/kryos-potamos-caledonian-waterfall-pouziaris-24-april/

Today’s (10 April) activity is moved to tomorrow, Sunday. All other conditions remain unchanged, incl. the Nicosia meeting point, which stays at the big church of tis Theou Sophias. The reason for the change is obvious, when you look at the weather forecast: rain today, with high probability, dry on Sunday https://weather.com/weather/hourbyhour/l/60e0b387504002b169d1f2a9fb6125b7181a36945d04a9fbcb95fa85c58e0114. Anyone wishing to participate on Sunday, please write to the walk leader, specifying if you are staying for lunch as well or not.
The stroll in Galata and Kakopetria on 4 April offered remarkable impressions, varying from the clear waters of Clarios river to the flowering fields, reminiscent of paintings by the impressionist Claude Monet. The club welcomed new members, who blended nicely with existing members and all enjoyed the treat of a rich meze meal after the walk. Compliments to Anna and Maria for the photos.
