The Hydra Meetup 2011 - Reports and Photo Links

Postby anneporter on Sun Jul 03, 2011 3:40 pm

Hello, Ute,
Have faith! Yesterday the sun suddenly burst out here in Newfoundland after a month of cold rain and fog and thawed us all out..

And even though "Leonard Cohen is never going to bring my groceries in,"
I can at least carry my lunch in your lovely blue bag.

Thanks again!
Anne

Ute, I thought that's the way a happy yard is supposed to be! Of course, it might only apply to chickens... :roll:

Ute, You don't have to wait for Leonard--you can come to Feast of Cohen. It happens every December.

:lol: - Finally!

Why is it that when I come back from any of these meetups, whether they be before or after concerts or a specific meetup such as this, I always think - woulda, coulda, shoulda. With as little time as I spent with everyone, know that I cherished every moment. Naming names means that I would potentially leave out someone and there were some many of you that made our time on this loveliest of Greek isles so welcoming and perfect. What a joy to meet old friends and then the added bonus of making new friends. I deeply thank you all for this.

Maybe someday, when I cull through the 300+ photos I took, I will figure out how to post them without cluttering up the forum (but they are paltry in comparison to all the photos posted here through links.). Thank you all for the beautiful photos - they are much appreciated.

I miss all you wonderful people and this gorgeous island also and am looking forward to 2013.

Warmest regards,
Mary (& George)

It was a sincere pleasure to meet everyone that I had the opportunity to meet while on Hydra last month. I so look forward to returning next year (without the group) and the following year (with the group). Hydra is definitely an incredible place and it has stolen a major portion of my heart after my first visit. Here are my pictures from days 1-8. When I get day 9 from Susan I will upload and offer them up as well. Take care!
