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 ...

David Fagan

David Fagan is CEO, president, managing director, author, publisher, and chief bottlewasher of 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!

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.

Dawn Patrol

Sunrise in Kamini

An awesome show at dawn

Hydra is famous for spectacular sunsets … but how about this (un-PhotoShopped) sunrise in Kamini, early December.

New Sheriffs and ….

Official rhubarbs from the big city over the hill (past 4 Corners), Hydra, are that we have a new sheriff in town (mayor). This time, with a clear majority, so as not to scupper Miaoulis ships. To this end, we residents from outer Kaministan wish Angelos Kotronis, the new Chief Chair, the very best of office and our well wishes. We also wish to thank Kosta Anastopoulos for his 16 years of dedicated and constructive service to our community.

Election weekend…

Weather and boats ashore; not shots of people in ballot lines, or purple fingers, or thumbs in the air, or  other flag-waving events associated around the world when electing a new politician. Simply how outer Kamininstan viewed the day queue free… may the best man have won!!

Voting day ends season

The weather helped make it the holiday it should be.

Tough day Nov. 7 2010

Voting in Kamini passed without a hitch.

Welcome to our new format.

While there is still a learning-curve in progress, we hope you will enjoy our latest endeavors. It was noted that the Comet hasn’t been as active of late; some thought that perhaps enthusiasm had waned.

We intend to rectify this impression henceforth with weekly photos, more frequent inside news and images, and most probably an alternative slant to the rumors and rhubarbs. And we’ve added the ability for visitors to participate with their own muses and mutters.

Above all this is for fun; there is no hidden commercial agenda to the Comet. We like to share with those few who appreciate the outer/lighter side of Hydra. This is not an enticement in disguise; we will deliberately ungloss life in our valley. We like it as it is—too far off the norm for anything the ‘real-world’ should perceive as a real destination, other than a short visit. We do support commercial developmen—on other islands.
