After a late breakfast of bacon and eggie bread, we set off back to Skiathos.  Our destination was Koukounaries bay which has a very popular beach with lots of water sports, which Lee was keen to have a go at.  He had suggested Chris might join him in parasailing but had been told in no uncertain terms that this was unlikely!
 
Another good sail across, and this time Lee actually spotted some dolphins.  They were not in a playful mood unfortunately, so didn't come close to the boat, but came close enough to be seen - at last!
 
We arrived in Koukounaries bay in time for lunch and dropped the anchor.  By now there was a brisk onshore breeze and this, coupled with the deep water, swell and wash made us reconsider whether we should leave the boat to go ashore.  We had lunch while we thought about it and then decided that it would be best to move on to Skiathos town harbour, and visit Koukounaries tomorrow when we have planned to hire  a car to explore the island inland.
