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.

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 ...

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!

Favorite Joke of the Month | February 2011

A Scotsman and an Irishman in a bar

A Scotsman and an Irishman in a bar

Sitting in a bar the Scotsman says, “As good as this bar is, I still prefer the pubs back home. In Glasgow , there’s a wee place called McTavish’s. The landlord goes out of his way for the locals. When you buy four drinks, he’ll buy the fifth drink.” 

“Well, Angus,” said the Englishman, “At my local in London , the Red Lion, the barman will buy you your third drink after you buy the first two.” 

“Ahhh, dat’s nothin’,” said the Irishman, “back home in my favorite pub, the moment you set foot in the place, they’ll buy you a drink, then another, all the drinks you like, actually. Then, when you’ve had enough drinks, they’ll take you upstairs and see that you gets laid, all on the house!” 

The Englishman and Scotsman were suspicious of the claims. The Irishman swore every word was true. 

“Did this actually happen to you?” asked the Englishman. 

“Not meself, personally, no,” admitted the Irishman, “but it did happen to me sister quite a lot.

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.

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
