>> Friday, October 11, 2013 – autumn weather, ferries, Kali Strata, Pedi, rainy season, the Judas Curse, yachting
|Just add water. A week after the rain and the wild grasses are germinating among the stones.|
|Desiccated oregano bushes are reviving on the hillside, sprouting tiny furls of new green leaves. The flower buds which are dried to make the Greek herb rigani that we know and love only appear in the late spring, around April.|
|The Symi Gallery on the Kali Strata, easily identifiable by the Kate MacKay colour boxes about the entrance, is currently hosting an exhibition of drawings by Ian Bishop.|
|A grand but neglected mansion on the Kali Strata, food for many a romantic dream.|
|Early morning calm.|
The number of yachts is steadily dwindling as the cruising season draws to a close and they return to their winter berths, often in Turkey and Cyprus.
|The heavenly blue of the plumbago, referred to locally as blue jasmine. It is a popular choice here as it flowers for many weeks in the summer and requires very little water.|
|The Blue Star Diagoras arrived this morning, delivering amongst other things the lighting van for the filming of 'The Judas Curse' which starts in Chorio this Sunday.|
Have a good weekend.
