I found this old photo taken in the Bahia bar. My silly way of lightening the Chernobyl crisis. At the time fallout was threatening to radiate all of Eastern Europe. I remember there was run on NoyNoy tinned milk (there was no fresh milk to be had on the island bac ...

Hydra finishes the season on a high note! Hydra finishes the season on a high note!
Credit due, quite literally! When the world is facing an unprecedented energy crisis as 2022 draws to a close, our beloved Rock is now getting renewable energy. Hugely beneficial to the island in so many ways. Bravo, and thank you to those who made it possible!

Roger Green came up with a classic to describe the Rock’s permanent inmates when the summer swarms drive local denizens into hiding. Now into its third decade, the resident bard’s traditional Pirofani opening poem was spot on. We shall be blissfully Inka ...

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.

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!

Not Washed Out!

Pouring rain at Theo’s closing did nothing to dampen the spirit of the occasion—in fact, if anything, the novelty of the cloud burst generated a whole new atmosphere. Guests at the Pirofani closing took refuge under Dimitra’s adjacent shop awning, but even that was no guarantee of shelter from the spray.

Dancing, cooking, and celebrating the end of a long hot season in the rain was a memorable event. The only thing conspicuous by its absence was Roger’s annual closing poem as he had escaped the Rock a week prior.

We will miss our favourite character restaurateur and his menu, wish him well on his winter travels, and look forward to a grand opening in the spring.
