WE ARE GOING THE OTHER WAY ROUND. Alonissos first, then Skopelos. Current rough estimate arrival Skopelos 2:30pm our time, 12:30 your time. I’ll update on that once we leave Alonissos. Change of route because of weather - we think it’s glorious, apparently Captain thinks there’s waves on the other route. That’s what you get with a Softypants in charge! So cancel this lunch time dates and start watching the waving places at 1pm.
Wednesday “some date that’s covered over on my watch”. At last we got in gear for a proper dawn swim and got to the beach at 7:30am. Slightly more waves, but still so lovely. We did 16 lengths - I shall be a shadow of my former self when we go home! We popped into town to get a few more things, but because I had forgotten that my new trousers with elastic would be ready on Friday, we had to buy a few ladies things to pass the time - Vera gets two for one almost everywhere, so we’ve got twice as many of everything. I try to remind myself we were a few kilos under coming out and hope that’s enough to cover the additions we’ve bought. Gyros and beer in Nikos - he has his own way and fortunately I have enough Greek to catch him getting our order wrong (and earn a grumpgh and snort from him).
We ate in Jasteri, two of the specials of the day, Vera had salmon which she said was terrific and I had sea bass which was terrific. Tsatsiki starter, one and a half beers and one and a half waters, E42.50, bargain for expensive fish.
Best place would be on that patio area to the right of the tree (as we look at it) so long as they don't come too far forward and stay at the back where the bikes are propped up on the fence. That's probably the closest the web cam view could give. If that blue motorbike/scooter thing stays there all day then if they lined up with its front wheel about 6ft from it on the patio that would be about right.
