Symi Sunset

The rainy season in Greece brings with it some amazing skies.  Note how clear the Turkish coast is on the far side of Pedi Bay - a rare sight in the summer but a regular occurence in the winter when the wind is from the north.  In a week or so we will be able to see snow caps on some of the more distant peaks as some of the Turkish mountains are under snow from December until early April.  Many of the mountains in Greece have already had their first snowfalls too.  I took this photograph at sunset on Monday evening from the dirt road below my farm in the Pedi Valley.

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.
