Seen Recently on the Pedi Road


I don't usually go in much for animal pictures on this diary but this mother and child twosome were particularly appealing in the spring sunshine - and totally impervious to the roar of the power station over the road.  Similar scenes are evident on verges and patches of wasteland all round Symi at the moment as nanny goats and their kids and ewes with their lambs tuck in to lush spring flowers.

Giorgo's had goat on the menu last night (very tasty it was too), which had me a little worried. But I'm glad to say both mother and baby were still there when I passed by this afternoon!

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.
