No surprise to see that life goes on in Greece and you can still enjoy the beauty that surrounds you.

Keep the videos and slides coming.

Seconded

Hi Willk, hi kerny,

Life will not stop is Greece, or wherever the IMF makes its presence. Life WILL GO ON. The sun WILL rise. But the quality of our lives has been decreased dramatically. They forced a base salary around 700 euros per month, unemployment has reached 35%, petrol is the most expensive in the World ~ 1,8 euros / l and in some cases in islands more than 2.
In a few words their target is to demolish our country and with her pieces feed the global sharks of the so called "markets".

We are just trying to find our balance, not to stand on our feet. For sure we, (who publish such videos), are the luckier ones. Because there are MANY how have no cash, not even to buy bread or toilet paper or coffee. And they stand in line, at churches, for a plate of food.
Media don't transmit these scenes. They won't get more money if they say that a whole Nation has almost reached the bottom of this shit hole...

So, instead of staying home and watch tv, since we are unable to sail anymore, we stay in front of our pc screens, watching the videos we shot just a few years ago and share them with our salty friends.


Enjoy

As said above, most of us did not use their boats this summer. Some, used them for a very short time, some, like me, only twice, making the astronomical 14 miles in total (for the whole summer).
But, we all went to the see, stayed on the beach, watching the romantic sunsets or the breath taking sunrises, making dives at the blue Aegean.
This is a video without rib, although there is a motor pulling.
Enjoy some underwater scenes with my Aquascooter, in a flat calm Aegean Sea.


For those who can not read Greek, here is the translation:

In a completely calm Aegean Sea,
An underwater ride at Hiliadou,
Dedicated to my beloved daughter Lou, who had her name day
6th of August 2012

March 2010. A short rib trip to Kythnos island, some 25 miles from Sounion. If you want to skip the intro, go to 2:50
