Back again

Some of the “Τρατες” that were thrown into the sea have landed on the town beach again due to the stormy weather we had yesterday. Today is a better day without rain but with wind.

Much better

Martin send skopelosnews this gorgeous photograph of the sea at Perivoliou beach near Glossa. It is a hell of a lot more beautiful than the ones I took yesterday morning with my telephone (again sorry about that…) Thank you Martin and everybody who contributes to the blog with text and photos. Couldn’t do it without you.

The weather has calmed down considerably, hardly any wind and only the temperature has dropped to around 5 Celsius.

(sorry for the quality of the photos)

Very strong winds we have today. 8, 9 and 10 Beaufort. It is difficult to pass along the harbor front and along the road to the monasteries in Skopelos town. It is dangerous because the winds can throw you of your feet, your motorbike in some places. We will try and get other photos from around the island.

Bad weather on Tuesday

Those who are on Skopelos and in Greece will have noticed that we have a heatwave. It seems that a lot of countries around Greece have a heatwave too. Without a little bit of wind it is difficult to sleep but today (Wednesday) we are blessed with wind but we have to be extra careful because the danger of fire and fire spreading rapidly is close by.
Be careful with your cigarettes and work that might cause flames/fire !!!

Holidaymakers from all over the world are visiting Skopelos this year. Skopelosnews has seen an increase in big yachts visiting the island and there are many groups of young adults holidaying together here on the island from Greece but also from abroad.

If you think the beaches are too full during the day visit them after five o’clock. The first group of visitors has left the beach to go and eat and take a nap. Visit the beaches that don’t have umbrellas and sunbeds. They are bound to be less crowded. Take you own umbrella.
The photo above was taken on Milia at the end of the beach. Almost nobody around and the sea, oh that sea….

Better now

Good morning and had a good week !

The very bad weather that was predicted all over Greece has hit in certain places like Larissa etc. Skopelos had a lot of rain last night and there were also very strong winds.
I think we can safely say that it was less bad than we expected. Better safe than sorry. I heard a story of a Skopelitan who called the municipality and asked them if the parking area next to the elementary school could be opened so cars could be moved from the peripheral road to that safer parking area. A very good thought! Many cars and motor bikes were removed from the street leading to the harbor and the municipality is continuously cleaning the gutters and places where leaves and garbage can block the flow off water during a heavy rainfall.

This is a photo of last night before the storm and
