Greece 2023 – Hydra

The village of Hydra is located about 40 miles (64 km) south of Athens on an island which is also named Hydra.  The village is about a 90 minute ferry ride from Athens.

The island has no cars, trucks, motorcycles, or scooters.


Our first day on the island, I woke up before sunrise and went out for a walk.

Freight comes in to the island on small boats, is unloaded on the waterfront, and is then loaded onto mules for distribution.

We stopped for a morning coffee at a cafe along the waterfront.  These three dogs were hanging out on the steps waiting.  One of the many street cats sat on the other side of the plant, ignoring them.
