Jenine and Ian's wedding went off beautifully

Jenine and Ian's wedding went off beautifully. Even the weather behaved and the rain clouds held back until the festivities were over. Today's photograph was taken on the beach at Saint Nicholas in Pedi. We will be putting up more photographs on the Out and About page later.

On the subject of weather, the long range forecast for the week is showers and downpours. The town hall has been issuing announcements on the tannoy, warning everyone to move their cars out of the town square and the water courses in case of flooding. Unfortunately the more paths and roads are concreted over the greater the likelihood of flooding as there is nowhere for the water to be absorbed or captured and there are no storm water drains to duct the water harmlessly away. It has been misty all day with low grey clouds, high humidity and no wind. The sea is glassy grey and the gulet drifting off Harani looks as though it has been painted, it is so still. As the rain comes from the south it is still warm with temperatures in the mid to high twenties.

With the elections only a week away both mayoral candidates are holding meetings for the foreign electorate, tonight at the Alethini and tomorrow night at the Conference Centre respectively.

Have a good week.

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.
