SATURDAY NIGHT IN AEGINA TOWN
FOR THE PISACHIO FESTIVAL
The festival booths in the evening - giving out free samples of pistachio nuts and products
Leanover, Shagfest, and Doggy Style ...
heading for drinks on S4S's sailing boat "Astratos" in the marina
The boat does not have enough seating for all the hashers...
so many have their drinks on the floating jetty.
Christine manages to fall off the gang plank into the water...
and is heroically rescued by Self Service.
Luckily S4S has enough white towels on board for her to wrap herself in and keep warm.
Shagfest with Clitoria on the jetty
After the on-board drinks, the hashers with friends and family
have dinner (and more drinks) at a taverna on the beach
THE RUN & WALK ON SUNDAY
Hashers at the meeting point at the entrance to the port - at 12.00 noon
The bookmaker - the hare - describes the trail he set that morning
The trail leads the hashers down the narrow & rather noisy "touristy" back treets of Aegina town
Shagfest squeezes through the narrow gap between buildings
The hare poses by one of his many checks
Shagfest outside the wall surrounding a historic ruined church
The sign says 'Holy Church - Our Lady of Revelations'
(and with) Catacombs

Lunch at the Taverna
The taverna was located in the Marina
Walking to the taverna
Hungry hashers are ready to eat. Where's the waiter?
And who's still wearing their bikini?
Food at last!
Leaving the taverna after the meal
Hashers leave on the Sunday afternoon car ferry - along with droves of festival weekend visitors.
Enlarged view of the passenger crush. Were there any unfilled seats left in the ferry lounges?
