All Roads Lead To….. All Roads Lead To…..
They went thatta-way…!! Not so long ago, the island erected road signs designed to stop visitors from getting lost or confused. I was particularly pleased with the one in Kamini Harbour. Being Irish and all, it seemed normal; some newcomers however still ask m ...

Regatta signifies Season End Regatta signifies Season End
In like a Lion, out like a lamb, pretty much says it all about the annual yacht race from Athens to the Rock. Friday howling winds and high seas, these determind boats and crew braved the conditions to participate in the traditional season closing regatta. That was ...

Not a Pants on Fire true tail… Not a Pants on Fire true tail…
The comet staff and management made parole this month and escaped to the northeast coast of the States where we happened upon a pleasant surprise. An island also devoid of motorized transport. Fire island has long understood the value of not allowing mopeds and such ...

Instead the KC is getting down to some really interesting news rather than re-telling the who’s who and what of  the island’s August seen and be seen, scene. You put your new foot out… Mid-August 2016 called for a new model. Old transportation had ...

Some just Never “Get-it” Some just Never “Get-it”

Not trusted by at least 3, or is that 30 million visitors to date. Conceived in 1983, had to wait until it was invented in 1995 to launch internet on the island. No charges for anything as we have nothing to offer, this sight, er site, is for sore eyes only, enter a ...

From Black Friday to White Christmas?

Black Friday, a large rhubarb of silly proportions and a new terminology to us rural Greek folk. Apparently it's when people in the U.S and now spread to the U.K. stampede and maul each other ...

Closing Time

Theo, (and Roger’s poem) a big hit on opening night
