Shortly after I joined WU and started blogging, I quickly realized my list of good cams to post here was woefully short! Being hamstrung by the internet restrictions given to me by work, I started searching the web(using Bing via usa.gov), trying to find cams that had "mil" and "gov" in the URL. One night, I came across a link to a cam from Milos. "Where in the heck was Milos?", I wondered, clicking the hyperlink.
Whoa! It was large,(but not too large) had a crystal clear view, and what a view! A perfect combination of far away scenery with a foreground that actually had stuff going on, it also filled in a spot that enabled me to have a cam in the daylight for 24 hours! Needless to say, it occupied a place in the blog almost every week! However, a month ago, a thunderstorm fried the modem and router serving the cam, and rendered the cam dark! Fortunately, the cam itself was spared!
Who is behind the Pelicam, you ask? Well, the one behind the installation of the cam is a fellow by the name of Jean-Marie Lapaire! This is Jean-Marie below with the cam!
Jean-Marie is a native of Switzerland, which explains the Swiss flag the pelican was holding the other day!
The other one behind the cam is Andreas Mallis, who has vacation rentals around the bend from the cam! It's his business, Andreas' Rooms, that sponsors the cam!
Here's Andreas with his boat; he sometimes takes guests on excursions around Milos, and the neighboring islands.
Anyway, I thank Andreas and Jean-Marie for keeping the pelicam up and running through bad weather and trying economic times!
