There is a great job done by the municipality on the road to Glysteri beach where the road was getting smaller and smaller in width because of overhanging trees and bushes. It is being cleaned very well! They have now reached the road at the bottom leading to the beach.


Artists eye

All year round many artists come and visit Skopelos and get inspired by its beauty. Kimberly Harris is here at the moment an this is one of her pieces. I thought it looked like Skopelos town but maybe you think it looks like any greek village… Anyway I like Kimberly’s vibrant colors.
Here is more of her work. http://deziongallery.com/portfolio/kimberly-harris/

Grape fest in Glossa

This Saturday, 23 September, at 11:00 Glossa will celebrate the harvesting of Grapes again. Everybody will start at the Louki in Glossa center followed by a procession to the Sporades Center further up the road. Students will recite seasonal poems and sing songs, they will also offer everyone local grapes and wine. Foot crushing of the grapes will follow with the serving of the traditional mustalevria.

Dionysus the god of wine and merry with his son Stafylus, is reported, will crash the party!! Come join the celebration!!


Flying Cat 4 was supposed to travel from the Sporades to Volos at 07.05 this morning but due to a mechanical error it has not left the harbor yet. What will happen with passengers going to Skiathos (for the airport) we don’t know. The tourist agencies will probably have alternative transport from Glossa.

This is from James Thomason yesterday. “Running late today due to flotsam caught up in port jet, rendering it inoperable. Only averaged 19 knots instead of 37 from Volos to Skiathos. They’re trying to clear it before we depart to Skopelos. Fingers crossed !! ”


The recycling truck was spotted in the village and the loot was impressive. This blue bag was seen in a local pizza place.

As of tomorrow


Proteus and Express Skiathos together in the harbor.
