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.
Morning on the waterfront. Mules in the foreground waiting to be loaded. The supply ship (red ramp down for unloading, yellow crane) in the background.
These two have already been loaded (boxes of Nespresso in the foreground)
A horse pulling a two-wheel cart loaded with a pallet up the hill.
While I was busy taking this photo, the white horse just out of the photo on the left started opening a large bag of produce to grab himself a snack.
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.
