Back from Meteora to Skopelos we sailed two days later to Skiathos where we met Cherie and Gerhard from Pipino. Anchored there for two nights until we continued north to Porto Koufo and then around the peninsula of Sinthonia to the island of Dhiaporos.
We felt that the harbour in Skopelos was pretty safe to leave Laroobaa there for a few days. We took the ferry to Volos where we hired a car, drove up to Meteora and stayed in the village of Kastraki for 4 nights to explore the monastries. On the last day we visited the mountains to the west and the town of Trikala.
Several days later we are still in Skopelos, but have moved Laroobaa across the harbour to the pier on the North side. It is not so entertaining as berthing close to the bars and restaurants, but here the north wind will push us away from the pier and not on it.
We rented a scooter for a few days and drove around the island.
