Whenever an unusual vessel lurks off our little harbour, rhubarbs abound. This month a strange-looking, hi-tech floating crane was cause for such instant rumour—one being that the new and somewhat controversial Castello beach resort is now building a new pier to accommodate water taxis and other modes of transport.
The immediate response: this would be dangerous to bathers and further ruin the tranquillity of baby beach. Already citizens of our village are divided on the new business, arguing against the music/noise the place generates verses the business it attracts. While it is out of budget for many, it must be said that the new bar/restaurant is making good use of the old armory.
Another obvious conclusion was that the crane had appeared to lay a new electric cable, but for once the news is very good. The Assosdivers company were here to connect the new OTE (national telephone company) fiber optic cable to Hydra. It is said that this will greatly enhance the island’s already overcrowded bandwidth for Internet streaming and such.
