Mid Summer Kamini night Wild Life Mid Summer Kamini night Wild Life
Godzilla snail caught crossing our terrace. Scary nightlife to be avoided in our valley. The height of the season and it’s all happening in our quite village. Even the Paparazzi couldn’t catch these guys. Rare dangerous night stalking leopard toad.

Kamini’s Kodylenia Restaurant – 1985 Kamini’s Kodylenia Restaurant – 1985
We took this from Mavro Maties taverna, (the large yellow and red landmark structure in Kamini harbour), closed some decades now. Could not imagine the changes to come in our little village. Always tranquil, beautiful and has remained unspoiled over the years despit ...

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 ...

David Fagan

David Fagan is CEO, president, managing director, author, publisher, and chief bottlewasher of DavidFagan.org. On his first visit to Hydra back in 1983, David decided that owning a bar in this exotic location was an ideal way not to spend the rest of his life in the fast-lane of corporate advertising and journalism. It was an idea spawned by the Honorable Bill Cunliffe of Bill’s Bar, renowned wateringhole for anyone who knew this part of the world at the time. He and a couple of old-timers, Anthony Kingsmill and Leonard Bernstein, planted the seed: Come!

Surf’s up

February was announced with a howl. Boats in our little harour had to be bailed, not just rain but sea water.

Surf's up

Not a day for canoeing, or catching any boat, anywhere.

Brown water rafting anyone?

What can almost be descibed as a flash flood, here is proof for those summer time visitors who may have wondered why we have such a “grand” canal running through our valley.

Kamini river

Impassable - a current strong enough to wash one away.

Brown port

An idea of how much erosion took place

Xappy 2011

Kamini was too tranquil so we decided to wander over to Hydra to see if there was much ‘happening’ in the mega-polis… There was.

Wishing on a fresh fish

Lots of New Year wishes being made… mainly for a small fish!!

Happy, Merry, Grand Christmas Greetings

May 2011 bring health and happiness

Wishing everyone a festive, Festive Season. May ’11 bring health and more. Dimitra’s cheerful little display at our local hypermarket sends just that… cheer!

Attention all K(amini)-Mart Shoppers!

K (Kamini) - Mart Shopping

A far cry from the Mall

Kamini is probably one of the last places where one’s supermarket shopping receipt, (today 6th December 2010), is hand scripted on a page torn from a 2008 diary, January 17th.

It may not offer the variety in selection, or the hi-tech trolleys and computerised bustle of a K-Mart super shop, but we still prefer our local supply store.

Plus the parking is easier!

Oh… and did we mention, if a delivery truck is required, ours arrives no charge, on four furry legs with big ears and an awefully loud and obnoxious horn.
