Skopelos is full of visitors at the moment and as “locals” we dare not go into restaurants and coffee places too often because they are so busy. This year the frequency of arrivals of ferry boats, Flying Cats and Flying Dolphins is very high and the word on the street is that the Flying Cat 4, coming from Thessaloniki, has helped the island a lot. Last week Mayor Boutaris from Thessaloniki visited Skopelos (yes, we saw him on the street!) and spoke with the mayors from Skopelos, Skiathos and Alonissos about the continuation of this route. Of course it is not up to the mayors if this boat will continue coming next year. The boat company has the last say and probably also the Greek government because many lines are sponsored by them.
Although it is very busy in and around the port the nice thing about Skopelos town is that two streets up from there it is quiet and hardly anybody is about. On one of those street I (Daphne) found this door. Just a door.
