The refreshment stop will be at Konnos Bay.

Meet up point is the To Ellinadiko Taverna

Meet up time 9 30 -- 9 45 am

Set off to drive the short distance to walk start point 10am

A good day out yeterday up in the Troodos, the walk was on the Persephone trail. The smell of the pine forest was fantastic and the weather was great for both the walk and the picnic that followed.
Here are a few pictures taken en route.

Early evening is a much better time to start the walks this time of year, the bench at the top of the " rock steps" was a welcome sight for some.

See photo's taken en route
