The Rainy Season

The rainy season arrived on Saturday afternoon with a steady succession of thundershowers and squalls that continued until Sunday morning. A total of 7 mm of rain fell over a period of about 12 hours. The weather has now turned cold and windy with a brisk northerly breeze whipping across the bay. The sea is a deep inky blue speckled with white crests and the chop is slopping against the quayside. Yachts are scudding by, sails crisp and gleaming in the sparkling light as they head towards Rhodes.

The wind should drop by nightfall with a few warm days ahead before the next rainy spell hits us on Friday afternoon. We are all hoping that it will be clear for the Clean up the World/Clean up Symi Day on Sunday 21 October.

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.
