Kamini April Fool? Kamini April Fool?
Who wants to go for a walk? Unanimous yes. Quandary in the port: left to Vichos, right to Hydra town, or a dip in the harbor. Happy Spring all.

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 ...

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!

To Cut Red Tape; this the Only Way Is!

Here is one example of  behind the scenes Red Tape idiocracy. A common potential health hazard to the village thwarted by ludicrous bureaucracy . The leaky Vothros (septic tank) of ours, will take months and months to do permanently, because  in order to obtain permission to do so, an awfully expensive official document has to be stamped, drawn and quartered, by a various selection of hard working civil servants who understand why funds not to introduce a decent sewage system for Kamini in favour of a for-instance, planned set of park benches on an electrified paved road to Vlichos are more important.

May the Voth-Force be with you!

May the Voth-Force be with you!

Obviously we are having it temporarily fixed now, for safety and olfactory reasons before the season, but within a year the same rhubarb as every year. I feel for the guys down in the valley for whom this is a real and ongoing problem. Ask Zoe or Elleni at their Pensions. We demand justice… Well it is is here—– May the Voth-Force be with you.

Texting While “Driving”


Come and get it.


Usually a lethal combination, however there is always an exception. For example, traffic into Kamini harbour in February doesn’t pose much risk by them what’s relinquished steerage. Spotted here, a local mate (anonymous by request for fear of  other paparazzi or fishering-fellows)  summoning family help to carry the days catch. Love wintertime on the island, these snippets are ‘once only’ specialities.

Donkey Deal of a Lifetime

We do periodically get some unusual requests through the site but this morning’s was a first, one of the best in fact.
The offer of “live” donkeys at only $ 500 a head to be collected from Alexandria port in Egypt.
The deal was that we had to take a minimum of 1 200 ‘heads’ (yep, one thousand two hundred) Fair assumption here that yer man didn’t do much research about the Rock, thanks Mohamed, right form of transport, wrong size island. Imagine a herd that size landing here…. Chaos, Mutiny, Stampede, Rhubarb!!!

Rush hour…

Traffic on the hill, runaway vehicle disturbs an otherwise tranquil morning coffee on the terrace. Who needs this kind of stress to start 2016?
