Rokemary Kleinworth Van LooGreat memories of Hydra are etched in my mind! That six weeks in Greece was crazy, wonderful, joyous experience! They say that each thing you do in life becomes a part of you, ergo, deep inside me, somewhere, is a fun loving Greek! Ops!

There have been queues outside the banks of our island since the early morning, following Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras's announcement of a referendum. "Numb," people rushed to make withdrawals from ATMs at bank branches while money was still available. Up to this moment there are still lines outside the banks, with citizens making reasonable inquiries and concerned for the future of our country. ... See MoreSee Less
Hydra, Greece: This off-the-beaten-path artists’ haven is one of the Saronic Islands of Greece, a little more than an hour’s ferry ride from tourist-heavy Athens. Grab a croissant (or if you’re feeling slightly more debauched, a beer) at the open-early O Fournos bakery, and sit on the west side of the crescent-shaped harbor and look over to the opposite side of the island just as the fishermen set out in search of the catch of the day. Your view won’t be hindered by any roaring engines: Motorized vehicles are not permitted on the island. ... See MoreSee Less

The Melina Mercouri Foundation invited the international fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier to create collectibles inspired by Melina, where all proceeds from the sales will be used exclusively for the purposes of the Foundation.
He chose to devote his trademark, white and blue stripes, in two versions, a mariniera and t-shirt, based on two photographs of Melina Mercouri by the legendary photographer Douglas Kirkland and Bill Yoscary, who gave them for free. Jean Paul Gaultier took care in the design of the marinieras t-shirt bearing his signature, which are produced in accordance with the quality specifications in Greece. The mariniera, featured in Melina's wardrobe, makes it a timeless symbol of style for women and men. The two objects are sold in a limited number at the Melina Mercouri Foundation and in the e-shop of the Benaki Museum and at the boutique Luisa in Athens.
The presentation of the marinieras and the t-shirt was held Tuesday, April 28, at the Melina Mercouri Foundation through a creative installation curated by set and costume designer Eva Nathena.
WOMAN photographed before their premiere these two pieces that blend forever Gaultier with the consciousness of Greece for the cover of the May issue circulating in kiosks. ... See MoreSee Less
Hydra met the famous French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier and the famous journalist and presenter Nikos Aliagas. Having walked the streets, tasted delicacies at beaches, and enjoyed the sea, they visited the exhibition dedicated to the memory of Melina Mercouri as part of Miaouleia 2015.
The two men chatted together, observing and commenting on the photos of the great diva exhibited, courtesy of the Melina Mercouri Foundation, in the Melina Mercouri municipal hall on the port at the initiative of the Brotherhood of Athenian Hydriots, sponsored by the municipality and institutions of the island.
Nikos Aliagas had with him a TV crew that was making a film dedicated to Hydra. The crew visited the exhibition together with Gaultier and it was an opportunity to talk about the life and work of Melina and her unsurpassed personality. The designer and reporter both wore the marine-themed t-shirt designed by Jean Paul Gaultier specifically for the Melina Mercouri Foundation, the proceeds of which will be allocated for the purposes of the foundation.
Shortly before their visit the two stopped on the port and Nikos Aliagas filmed shots with Gaultier for the broadcast of the first French TV "50 Mminutes Inside," at a moment when boats and speedboats were entering the harbor while the sun was setting—capturing great images of Hydra.
Two major projects for Hydra are due to start soon, having received the "green light" from the relevant departments.
One project involves the promenade from Kamini to Vlichos and the other the management of garbage. ...
Both projects are essential to our island, since one will contribute to our country's tourism development and will facilitate access between key points of Hydra, and the second will provide a solution to a "problem" that has plagued the island for decades.

Although the sea figures prominently in his work, Pavlos Samios makes it the protagonist for the first time in this new exhibition, eloquently titled “The Sea Everywhere,” which opens at Hydra’s Historical Archive and Museum on June 13. Indeed, the sea is omnipresent in the work of the distinguished Greek painter, not only because of the island of his origin but also because of the multiple seaside destinations that have crossed his heart.
“The sea is included in all our lives,” the artist notes Pavlos Samios, indicating that the water element makes its presence felt in his work from his first creation until today. The sea is often in his work Samian, either in the background or as an outline in his works. … So even when indulging in his favorite subjects—when painting women, still lives, cafes, couples, night scenery, home interiors—he always includes an open window one a glimpse of the sea.
In the works included in this exhibition at the Historical Archives Museum of Hydra, the sea is present, even when it isn’t. Otherwise, the exhibition features abstract paintings of islands, holiday memories, and the wonderful women and dragons of Pavos Samios, as well as lazy cafes and still lifes.
Duration: June 13 to July 31, 2015. Opening: Saturday, June 13 9:00 p.m. Visiting hours: daily, 9 a.m.–4.00 p.m. and 7.30 p.m.–9.30 p.m. Location: Historical Museum Archives Hydra: tel. 2298052355, 54142 ... See MoreSee Less

The "Miaouleia" is a one of the biggest festivals—like the Kountourioteia—held every year in late June in Hydra.
The festivities are dedicated to the anniversary of the death of Admiral Andreas Miaoulis (1769-1835) and to his military action during the liberation struggle of the Greeks (1821-1827).) Andreas Miaoulis led the seamanship of the victorious Greek fleet against the Ottomans.
The "Miaouleia" consist of a series of celebrations that last two weeks and include a variety of activities and artistic events, exhibitions, concerts, etc. At the center of the events is the reenactment of a small part of the Battle the Elder with the burning of a replica of a large frigate at the harbor entrance.
Admiral Andreas Miaoulis died on Sunday, June 11, 1835, and was buried on the Piraeus coast, which has since been called Akti Miaouli. In 1952 his remains were transferred to the Naval Academy of Piraeus, and in 1986 they were transferred on a naval ship to Hydra and taken to the castle of Kavos, with a memorial service and wreath laying performed at the statue of Admiral Andreas.
During the celebrations the jar with the heart of Admiral Andreas Miaoulis is transferred from the Hydra Historical Archives and Museum to the Holy Cathedral for a liturgy and doxology.
The jar is then taken to the castle of Kavos for a memorial service and wreath laying at the statue of Admiral Andreas.

Τα «Μιαούλεια» είναι ένα μια από τις μεγαλύτερες γιορτές – όπως και τα Κουντουριώτεια - που πραγματοποιούνται κάθε χρόνο στο τέλος Ιουνίου στην Ύδρα.
Οι εορταστικές εκδηλώσεις είναι αφιερωμένες στην ετήσια επέτειο του θανάτου του Ναυάρχου Αντρέα Μιαούλη (1769-1835), αλλά και στη στρατιωτική δράση του, κατά τη διάρκεια του απελευθερωτικού αγώνα των Ελλήνων (1821-1827). Ο Ανδρέας Μιαούλης ήταν ο άνθρωπος που οδήγησε με την ναυτοσύνη του, τον ενωμένο Ελληνικό στόλο νικηφόρα ενάντια στον Οθωμανικό.
Τα «Μιαούλεια» αποτελούνται από μια σειρά εορταστικών εκδηλώσεων που διαρκούν δύο εβδομάδες και περιλαμβάνουν ποικίλες δραστηριότητες και γεγονότα καλλιτεχνικά, εκθέσεις, συναυλίες κ.α. Κέντρο των εκδηλώσεων είναι η αναπαράσταση μικρού τμήματος της ναυμαχίας του Γέροντα και κυρίως της στιγμής που πυρπολείται μια μεγάλη φρεγάτα που ολοκληρώνεται με την καύση στην είσοδο του λιμανιού, ενός ομοιώματος φρεγάτας.
Ο Ναύαρχος Ανδρέας Μιαούλης απεβίωσε την Κυριακή 11 Ιουνίου του 1835 και ενταφιάστηκε στην ακτή του Πειραιά, η οποία από τότε ονομάστηκε Ακτή Μιαούλη. Το 1952 τα οστά του μεταφέρθηκαν στη Σχολή Ναυτικών Δοκίμων του Πειραιά και το 1986 μεταφέρθηκαν με πλοίο του Πολεμικού Ναυτικού στην Ύδρα όπου τους επιφυλάχτηκε μεγάλη και πανυδραϊκή υποδοχή και Στη συνέχεια η λήκυθος μεταφέρετε στο κάστρο του Κάβου και πραγματοποιείτε επιμνημόσυνη δέηση και κατάθεση στεφάνων στον ανδριάντα του Ναυάρχου Ανδρέα.
Κατά την διάρκεια των εορταστικών εκδηλώσεων η Ληκύθου με την καρδιά του Ναυάρχου Ανδρέα Μιαούλη μεταφέρετε από το Ιστορικό Αρχείο-Μουσείο Ύδρας στον Ιερό Καθεδρικό Ναό και όπου γίνετε Θεία Λειτουργία και δοξολογία.
Στη συνέχεια η λήκυθος μεταφέρετε στο κάστρο του Κάβου και πραγματοποιείτε επιμνημόσυνη δέηση και κατάθεση στεφάνων στον ανδριάντα του Ναυάρχου Ανδρέα.

This weekend the Loutrki Divers identified essentially a big dump under the surface of Hydra's harbor that needs immediate care and intervention.
The first step was removal of almost five tons of garbage during the three days of diving on the right side (when entering our harbor), which is broken down as follows: 510 pounds of metals, 140 kg aluminum, 3628 kg plastic, and 387 kg glass.
The findings of volunteers were gathered on the landing, and there were only small objects and even household appliances. Among other things removed from the bottom, there were boxes, cans, batteries, glass, plates, bottles, carpets, pipes, tires, nets, buckets, anchors, pots, balloons vessels, planters, and even three trash bins. There remains on the seabed bulky objects and devices that need a large company for general cleaning.
As submitted by Loutraki Divers, our port needs at least one month cleaning of the seabed. They estimate that there are over 30 tons of waste in both fishing shelters and in entire port around 60 tons.
The volunteers divers indicate that that tourist and fishing boats are at fault for this bad image of our harbor bottom. They speak about the necessity of immediate cleaning of the harbor, as the bottom in several places marine life is trying with great difficulty to survive.
The group of volunteer divers Loutraki Divers is grateful for the hospitality of all the people of our island, and the involvement of DLTY, the municipality and many residents in this whole exercise. They declare that they are indeed available for future assistance.
We note that the continuation of this action will undoubtedly bring in the long term great benefits and will help our port have a mirror-like bottom, without objects and trash. Mirroring this should be the general behavior of people who approach our port and each port, who must respect and not to pollute the marine environment and the seabed.
In the direct promotion of procedures to restore uncontrolled landfills to comply with EU legislation and avoid fines of Justice of the European Communities, the EDSNA proceeds by applying the program of the new regional authority on change management of waste.
Specifically, the President of EDSNA and Region of Attica, Rena Douro, under the Operational Programme "Environment and Sustainable Development", signed the cooperation agreement between the Federation and the municipality of Hydra on the rehabilitation of uncontrolled and construction waste treatment plant and waste disposal unit the municipality of Hydra. The project includes nine sub-projects:
1. Study on restoring ChADA Hydra and construction waste treatment plant Hydra. 2. Restoration ChADA Hydra. 3. Construction waste treatment plant with technology / ies which prevents the creation of unpleasant odors and therefore emissions and creating bio-screening network. 4. Establishment and operation of the local station Refuse Metamorphosis. 5. Information programs / awareness projects and waste management activities of Hydra. 6. Study on the construction of landfill waste space. 7. Buy land for construction debris landfill space. 8. Construction area of landfill waste. 9. Mechanical space equipment operating landfill waste.
The set of subprojects resulting from the study, situated in Feasibility Study level which produced exclusively by the competent services of EDSNA. The study relates to the Integrated Management of Solid Waste of Hydra and takes into account the requirements of European legislation.
Alongside the EDSNA progresses, with decisions 94, 95, 96 of 2015, the Executive Committee, in the notice of open competitions for the award of rehabilitation works of ChADA SE Attica, Keratea and Megara.
Completed today (Sunday, the 10th May 2015) successfully underwater cleaning of the port of Hydra from the group of "Loutraki Divers" which in just three days pulled from the bottom of the harbor over 4600 kilos of garbage (plastic, glass, batteries, fittings, etc.), which were deposited for decades in the bottom of the port!
The design and implementation of cleaning the port of Hydra was a remarkable ecological initiative for the de-pollution of the seabed of the harbor from the Hydra Municipality and the Municipal Port Hydra Fund (D.L.T.Y.), in collaboration with representatives of Loutraki Divers (volunteer divers Loutraki Group), Greek Union of Marine Environment (HELMEPA), and the Port Authority Hydra.
