Wed 15 June - Yesterday, the children of Vathy Primary (Grade) School put on a wonderful performance of 'Ulysses Returns to Ithaca' at Dexa Beach, just outside of Vathy. Congratulations on the performances and to the organizers for some great music and wonderful costumes. Dexa beach, with the help of some warm weather and only a little wind, set the scene for this great myth of Ithaki. The afternoon brought life to Dexa Beach, which in winter was bare and deserted, and gave families and friends a good opportunity to get into the mood for Summer festivity. Dexa Beach has sand, and the Cantina is also up and running, no wonder this is one of Southern Ithakis favourite places to be.

Vathy on a warm Summers eve
Fri 17 June - Below - A mild and warm night in Kioni. on the bay.
Thur 16 June - Left - Drakouli sits along the bay in Vathy more like a palace than a Cafe, but that's exactly what it is. A cafe with swimming pool outside and billiards inside. Don't let this place intimidate you. Go on in and have a good time.
Right - Wild Dimitri. He said "don't put this photo on, it looks like a Most Wanted Poster." So what do I do? Ignore him. He's not at all as scarey as he looks.. Well, not to me. If you want to make Dimitri happy, give him some up beat Country and Western music. He loves it.
Sun 19 June - After being overcast and scorching hot most of the day, late afternoon on Saturday the skies cleared and gave way to a mild and warm eve with calm bays in Vathy. The long weekend brought alot of people to the island and as more yachts sailed into Vathy harbour, Saturday night began with promising gusto.
