While in Greece we made numerous trips to the island of Hydra. The only way to get there was by boat, ferry or hydroplane. This was one of our favorite day trips both because of the great food and shopping on the island and the relaxing and scenic trip out and back.
The fastest way to get to Hydra was on the Russian built hydroplanes.

The entrance to the harbour once was fortified with a fortress, but now only houses protect the entrance.

The harbour is the heart of this small island, and this is a very crowded dock.

There is nothing like relaxing on the rocks with a good book.
