One night in the Pedi valley


Meet my alarm clock!

They start crowing from about 5 a.m.

Despite the bird flu flap there are still some poultry on the island. We have kept 2 flocks, each in separate cages as per the regulations so that they don't mix with the wild birds. They reward us with fresh eggs every day.

Now that Mike has told me how to up date my diary myself you may be hearing from me more often!

About this Blog

I sailed into Panormitis Bay, Symi, by chance one windy July day in 1993 and have been here ever since. The locals tell me that this is one of the miracles of St Michael of Panormitis. A BA graduate with majors in English, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, the idea of living in what is to all intents and purposes an archaeological site appeals to me. Not as small as Kastellorizo, not as touristy as Rhodes, Symi is just the right size. I live on a small holding which my husband and I have reclaimed from a ruin of over-grazing and neglect and turned into a small oasis over the course of the past 22 years. I also work part-time for Symi Visitor Accommodation, helping independent travellers discover and enjoy Symi's simple pleasures for themselves.
