Yesterday we had our first proper group walk of the winter. It was so nice to be back out walking in the hills friends again. We walked up to the black caves in Pigadakia, Zakynthos and back down again. Unfortunately, I was unable to go up to the caves to take some photos as time was against us. At least that will us a good excuse to go back there!
The walk was a bit of a toughie, with long steep sections of uneven ground. In total, we covered just over ten kilometers which was a nice distance to be starting with. And as always I had my trusty camera with me.
Here is what I saw…
Through My Lens #2
After a long summer it was nice to be back walking with the group again. And after two days of rain, the weather could not have been better! In fact, it was a little too warm for walking.
Were we venturing into dangerous land?
The flat bits were nice.
The rolling hills looked lovely, even in the haze.
Last winter we stood beside the pylons at the top and looked down.
A pitstop to admire the view.
You can just about see the salt flats in Alykes.
The walk got a little steep in places.
And was rough underfoot.
Despite the recent rain (and we’ve had a lot), the ground was surprisingly dry.
Up and up we went.
The terrain was hard on the ankles.
But the views were worth it.
And back down again.
The view over towards Alykes and Alakanas.
It’s not until you climb up and look back down over Zakynthos, that you realize just how unspoiled it is.

This bit of hosepipe. How on earth did that get up here, he wondered whilst scratching his head.
Where is your favourite place to walk?
