The consequence of a poor rainfall this season came vividly alive on the hike of 25 Feb. along Lefkara lake. The pictures show the lake has receded up to 3 m from year ago. Notwithstanding this harsh reality, the very large gathering of Strollers displayed the usual high spirits, on the hike and over lunch. Compliments to Antonis for leading the day and to Heidi for the photos. Join us next on 5 March https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/pedieos-gorge-5-march/

Where Blue meets Green – Petra Romiou 19 Feb.
On Sunday 19 February, the Cyprus Strollers walked along the coast at Petra tou Romiou. The weather was warmer than expected, the sky clearer than usual, and the gathering much bigger than ever. It was an easy 14 km walk, which attracted more newcomers even than the regular Strollers. The legend of Aphrodite, which would normally dominate such an excursion, faded into the background as Strollers old and new from around the world met and shared the experience, while languages from Arabic to Chinese could be heard along the way – all noting the beauty of the environment, where the sea meets land, where blue meets green, and flowers of yellow, pink and purple dot the terrain. This is the hiking season in Cyprus at its best. So join us for another amazing blue-green experience this Saturday https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/lefkara-dam-25-feb/. Compliments to Dina for this summary and to Antonis and Renee for the photos.
High Energy Strollers – Kakokefalos 11 Feb.
The large group of Strollers on Kakokefalos on 11 February were oozing vitality. We hiked at near zero temperatures, along a demanding uphill trail, yet our pace was energetic, and participants overflowed with determination, which turned into cheer over lunch. So much so, that the bad name of Kakokefalos seemed on the day rather unfair. Compliments to Antonis for his leadership, and to Anna for the photos.

Lavish Cape – 4 Feb.
The excursion of 4 February to Cape Greco stands out as a lavish experience for the large group of Strollers from 10 nationalities who, once more, defied the weather forecast. Rewards were plentiful; aside the good weather and calm sea, we marveled at some 10 different species of flowers, welcomed back Renee (after 4 years out of Cyprus) and exchanged mind stretching conversations over lunch. Compliments to Nicos for leading the day and to Antonis and Anna for the photos. Join us next here https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/mandra-kampiou-picnic-site-kakokefalos-11-feb/
