For the first time in a very long time it seems that part of the harbor entrance that was destroyed during the flood will be repaired. Skopelosnews saw waste/water pipes lying in trenches. This is maybe a backup for excess water. What the rest of the plans for this part of the harbor are we do not know but hopefully we can show you more in a couple of days.

This photo has been taken a couple of weeks ago but we still wanted to show it to you. Have a good day!

Mama Mia 2 ?

There are various stories in newspapers talking about a sequel to the first Mama Mia film featuring Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Julie Walters and many other actors. The first movie was filmed on Skopelos (about three weeks they were here) Skiathos , Pilion and the USA (film studio) Quite a few articles mention that on Skopelos will be filmed again. We will see!

This article in the Independent does not talk about where the sequel is going to be filmed.

Recycling yes !

This plastic bag hangs in an area where mainly (older) Greeks live and it is full of plastic, cans and other materials meant for recycling. Skopelosnews was soo surprised. Go Skopelitans go! All together we will get recycling of the ground.

Invited to a wedding from a friend. Look at the beautiful card and the small box that had weddings sweets (almonds) in it. What a beautiful invitation. Have a great weekend everybody. Boats are travelling again. The flying cat arrived very late last night and we heard that many people also travelled with the water taxi.

This is the flying cat leaving Skopelos this morning around 07.00 hours. It was probably going to Skiathos and Volos to drop off passengers who have booked a flight back home and fortunately they were able to get to the airport on time. If there are any boats coming back to Skopelos we don’t know. Difficult having a strike in the middle of the summer season.


Hans and Willeke van der Jagt send skopelosnews this photo of a boat timetable with a short note on it for Friday morning. There might be a boat going from here to Glossa, Skiathos and Volos but again we urge you to go to your boat ticket office and ask them what is happening. They have the latest news. Also if you are traveling without a company then maybe you could ask at the travel offices here in town if they are organizing anything. Maybe a excursion boat ?

This is how the sky looked this morning. At least it is not raining anymore and tomorrow is supposed to be wonderful!
