The Clouds are Back

A quiet spot for a siesta in Chorio.


A nanny goat and her two kids have just discovered this haystack in the Pedi Valley.


Free range sheep on the loose in the Pedi Valley. 


When they saw me the two grubby white sheep ran off in different directions, leaving the lone black sheep looking foolish and wondering where to go next.



The two local women in this car had a miraculous escape when their car failed to make the bend at Lieni.  Although the car rolled it did not hit either the reinforced concrete columns on the steps or the trees.  The driver and her daughter were wearing seatbelts and emerged shaken and shocked but otherwise all right.


The clinic in Chorio is now much easier to recognise with its newly painted sign. 


 We had a light sprinkling of rain around midnight that did little more than make patterns in the dust but the clouds are back and the air is fresher.  Temperatures are in the mid twenties.

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.
