Platsa & Nomitsa Thursday 31st OctoberToday was our last walk of our Autumn 2013 programme. On another wonderful sunny day we started our walk in Platsa. There were 13 of us and Jay the dog that set out from Platsa that took us up a kalderimi at the back of the village giving us wonderful mountain views. We then headed off towards Nomitsa calling in at the new amphitheatre on the way. We planned a refreshment break at the butchers taverna in Nomitsa but it was closed. So we had too make our way back to Platsa via the fresh water springs of Avli. For lunch at Yorgios's kafenion in the square at Platsa. A big thank you to those that helped out with transport.
Also a big thank you to you all who took part in our walks this year, that is an amazing 342 people (Wow).
Also a big thank you to all of you who follow this blog in the 3 years since I started writing we have now had over 10,000 visitors to the site. A big thank you from myself and Steve.

Cape Tenaro Tuesday 29th OctoberThis was one of our extra special walks that we do now and again. An earlier start than usual saw 7 of head off for the deep south of the Mani Peninsular. We drove as far as the road would allow and then parked and started the walk. We made our way down past some Roman mosaics on our way to the lighthouse at the southern most tip of this part of the European mainland. A glorious sunny day and very little wind made for pleasant walking. We had a picnic at the lighthouse before our return walk where some of us collected some rocks and took them home. A refreshing beer was had before we drove back to Stoupa.

We visited the village church before heading down into the Koskarakas Gorge. Here we stopped for a break before beginning the climb out of the gorge and heading back to Kambos for lunch at Mirandas Taverna.
