The Figs are Swelling

After a few days of random clouds and distant thunder the forecast is set fair once again. It is always a surprise just how cool 30 degrees centigrade can feel after days in the forties and everyone has been enjoying the mild evenings and amazing visibility a north wind brings. The stars have been exceptionally clear this week. The rest of Greece has been experiencing quite heavy downpours and thunderstorms and even Kastellorizo which is the southern most island in Greece has had the odd passing cloud.
The figs are swelling on the trees in the Pedi valley and the tomatoes are turning sweet and red. The island is filling up with people as we head into high season and we have noticed a great deal of interest from Norwegians since the following appeared in the Norwegian press. And yes, if you go through the slide show there are some familiar faces lurking behind those Mamma Mia! Costumes!

Have a good weekend.

Great video of Symi on the Link, Adriana! Let's hope it does bring more tourist business to the island!

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.
