KC wishes all and sundry a healthy happy 2017
With Love from us, no offence!!
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 me directions while staring with quizzical looks at the posted directions.
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 Friday arrival, leaving this morning in near doldrum conditions, so typical of fluctuations in the weather for these parts.
Th-Th-That’s all Folks
The event basically marks the official end to the season, most places will close tomorrow.
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, which like Hydra keeps it unique…
Two hours north of New York followed by a half hour ferry. Instead of donkeys most homes have their own “karotsi”, quaint little red wagon types for luggage transport. Grand as it was, but there is no place home and the greeting of a bray and hee-haw. Happy Fall y’all xx
Quaint as all, but never can beat the Hee Haw welcome of Hydra
Kamini Comet crew on parole.
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 done yeoman’s, seven summers, seven months a year, day in night out, seven days a week, visited and tramped three continents without a single sock in sight. I bid my old trusted sandals cheerio, and welcome the new version of same sturdy brand. (left in case you’re wondering) Long may they preambulate with me too. It is not lost on me even after all these years, that it is a gift to only own and need, enjoy wearing a single pair of comfortable odor free footwear more than half a year.
