Had a great sail across to Kea Island and anchored at Ormos Voukari for 3 nights didn't go ashore as Steve did not want to leave the boat as we were having very strong gusts.

13th July 2016
Returned to Olympic Marina to pick up our new Bimini and shade curtains 👍 No more trying to hang towels to keep out the sun. We did some shopping & washing, and got the cabin ready for our next guests.

15th July 2016
Left Lavrion after topping up the diesel and headed for the southern tip of Evia. We anchored for the night then headed for Skyro Island where anchored in a lovely little bay, Lanaria. We caught the public bus up to the "Chora" but unfortunately it was Sunday and nothing was open but the village was beautiful.

18th July 2016
Started sailing for Skopelos in about 30kn of wind, all of a sudden we were getting gust the strongest being 47kn so quick change of plan and we headed for Evia and anchored behind the break water at Kimi. Next day we headed for Skopelos but we couldn't find a spot to Anchor that night that Steve was happy with so we crossed to Alonnisos Island and anchored in Ormos Tzorti.

20th July 2016
Headed back to Skopelos and stayed on the pier, well a floating pontoon that they put out every summer cost €6 for the night.😄
We hired a scooter for the afternoon and headed up to a village up the hill had a lovely walk around the village but was very hot so stopped for a beer.
We walked back to the scooter and headed towards the little church made famous in the "Mama Mia" movie. I made it up the 300 Steps. It was worth it. The view was spectacular! The church was tiny so I'm not sure how they managed to get so many people in there, ahh the wonders of movie license.

21st July 2016
We headed back to Evia and continued sailing up the eastern coastline stopping at Koukounaries, Skiathos for lunch and a swim. We arrived at Ayios Ioannis, mainland Greece, on the town pier, if you could call it that. The pier was collapsing and we were on the very end, as it shallower out further in. The pier manager then proceeded to tell us that the cost would be €30, Steve said it was very expensive and reminded the guy that we only wanted to stay the night he in formed us that they charge by the month. We just laughed and paid putting it down to experience.
We continued further up the coast the next day and anchored out side the breakwater at Platamonas. Steve went ashore and checked on the Marina the marinara said we should come and he would only charge us for one of the two nights we stayed. It was very busy town with lots of tourists mostly all from the Balkans.
We had a great walk around the shops and stumbled onto a show of Greek dancing. Went into a shop to buy Steve a leather belt, the shop owner asked us where we were from and when we told him from NZ, he told us that he had lived in Tiahape and gone to School in Wellington. He insisted that we have a beer with him.

24th July
We sailed to Thesaloniki and anchored outside the marina moving in the following morning as we were meeting our next lot of guests Paul and Anna Higgins.
