The catamaran, called the Flying Cat, leaves the harbour
It's the event of our morning if we have gone down to the harbour for shopping and coffee. From our favourite cafe, the T-Cafe, we watch while the cat comes in and observe who embarks and disembarks.
All the little water taxis have to move out into the bay to make room for the catamaran to dock.
Once upon a time we would be expecting summer visitors and be on the quay ourselves waiting for the appearance of family heads at the top of the gangplank. Not last summer and not this summer either.
If you want to grab people post a good headline. This sure worked in my case, I saw flying cat and I was there, lolReplyDelete
Yes, that was a good title. Sometimes I'm inspired, and sometimes notDelete
Were there many passengers on that one?ReplyDelete
It was full which surprised me greatly. Not many English tourists allowed yet , must have been russian, or scandies. Maybe they were starting off on yacht holidays.Delete
I've done boats, cars, buses and trains, (and wheelbarrows and bike trailers) but I haven't yet been a flying cat....Mr TReplyDelete
You should ask Yael about the late Edmund. He was the original Flying Cat.Delete
Flying Cats travel oversea. Get ready for the biggest adventure!
It looks a state of the art sailing machine. Is the fare expensive?ReplyDelete
It's around 25euros one way and takes one hour. The normal boat costs 12 euros and takes 2 hours.Delete
Locals get a lot of their fares refunded. We no longer travel by boat or Catamaran. Roads have improved so much. We go over to the mainland by car ferry,7 euros, and go to Athens by car, if we really have to
Looks like a comfortable way to travel. We got a boat many years ago between Crete and Santorini and it wallowed around like a cork, I have never been so seasick! We get a cat type boat here between Sorrento and Queenscliff, takes 45 mins and is really smooth, a pleasant trip.ReplyDelete
Those old boats did wallow and they took twice the time to get to their destination. Santorini is something like 4 hours on the big CatsDelete
The way things are going you won’t be next summer either.ReplyDelete
At least you have warm weather.
So cold here right now. Took me ten minutes to defrost my car before I could go swimming lol
No, we just got messages from various rellies downunder to stay they're in lockdown mode again and no one knows what going happen with this delta variation. Groan. Its not over yetDelete
It's a very swish looking boat, I could watch boats coming and going all day. I might even book a table 'permanently' at that Café.ReplyDelete
It's the perfect place for people watching. All of Poros and half the rest of the world passes by. And the beers are cold and the ouzo comes with octopusDelete
People watching is amusing, especially when you see how people treat each other, makes us laugh sometimes.ReplyDelete
We saw a one-off yesterday. A lady at the next table jumped up to help an old lady wheel her suitcase down to the water taxi. Most (me) would just sit and watch and sip coffee. Bravo to herDelete
I love people watching - was wondering where your cat had flown to.ReplyDelete
Flying over the Saronic Gulf disembarking tired tourists on their road to recouperation and blistered skin on an exotic greek isle.Delete
Hopefully next summer you will see those family heads appearing again. In the meantime, enjoy your people watching while nibbling that octopus!ReplyDelete
July starts with the worst day of a heatwave and the sound of a pneumatic drill. Hope things get better. I'll need the ouzo and octopus v soon if they dontDelete

I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of theReplyDelete
liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
