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 ...

In Record Time!

We can at last put some of the rumours to rest, Castello, a.k.a Baby (Babe?) Beach, is on the brink of opening. Not as a hotel or exclusive bungalows. The beach itself remains free of rows of umbrellas. Nor are there signs of a noisy water sport center. So most of the wintertime rhubarbs were, not surprisingly, based purely on speculation and hot air.

Instead, a rather large, slick-looking, wining-and-dining establishment has been created in record time. Construction and landscaping beat all expectations—a mammoth project converting the old armoury ruin into a modern day castle will have been completed before the height of season.

The exact contents of the menu and the size wallet one will need to frequent the joint will no doubt be revealed shortly, but the good news is that the front in half of the pebble beach remains untouched, and only a couple of rows of chaise lounges occupy the back half.

So, it would appear that yaya’s and toddlers retain the freedom to come and go as usual without feeling they are infringing on the exclusive-looking premises, and of course visa versa for the proprietors. Castello is a handsome addition to Kamini in keeping with the style and beauty of our little village.

Latest “News” Flash: Castello opened last night (June 11) and is, according to first-hand reports, set soon to become a Mediterranean-style restaurant. It is already a nightclub, serving cocktails at standard exclusive prices!

Predicted Future Rhubarb: Sources tell us that Castello will be running its own sea shuttle with hourly service to and from Hydra Port for only €2.50. A novel idea, but if history is anything to go by, this innovation may attract several rhubarbs and potentially invite blockades from the resident water taxi and ciaqui unions! θα δούμε!

Jennifer
Jennifer first arrived on the Rock at the age of 10, after her father, Michael, bought a house above Hydra’s port. While she lived in Virginia year-round with her mother, Jeanne, and stepfather, Steve, she visited Hydra with her father every summer for a month, in her younger years tripping along the port chasing kitties, then later tripping home from Cavos to make her curfew (father had threatened to call the “police” if she was even a minute late).
