NEW! This weeks hashing episode includes a "Spot the Stork" competition!
(But cunningly, seagulls have been included just to confuse you...)

(lured by the prospect of a tasty English breakfast, no doubt)
"Riding along on the crest of a wave"
Some folks hadn't heard about our hash and went sailing

(perspiring in the heat & humidity -
and for running ahead to take photos)
IMF and Hamish pose outside the restaurant / bar -
where we were about to have lunch (a late English breakfast)
All patiently waiting for the food
Firstly we get served some wine and beer ... Ahhh!
Then the English breakfast arrives: Bacon, bangers, black pudding,
fried eggs, fried bread, tomatoes & baked beans -with- HP sauce
Everyone tucks in.
Our guest Greek-American film producer John slices his banger
time to go.
Doggie Style poses by the fishing boats on the way to the port.
The ferry manoeuvres towards the jetty
The passengers prepare to disembark in the usual rush
Piraeus, Doggie Style poses on the new bridge - built across the
main road & served by escalators - to make crossing the busy
road safe and easy for passengers.
It's very nice, but why was it not built prior to the 2004 Olympic games?
