>> Tuesday, October 15, 2013 – Eclipse, Kurtis Stacey, life on Symi in October, October weather, the Judas Curse, yachts and superyachts
|One view, two different mornings. Every day brings its own surprises and this weekend we were also visited by Eclipse, currently the world's largest superyacht which anchored off Nimborio. I didn't get a picture of it myself but you can see more about it on this link. The rocky hillside in the background of the photo of the Eclipse is typical Symi shoreline.|
|Someone has made an early start from Yialos and is already under sail. Another boat is chugging out of the sleepy anchorage in Pedi Bay. It is hard to do justice to the delicate colours and light on the water with my little Nikon.|
|Jasmine is in full bloom in gardens all round the island and in the evenings one can also smell the heady fragrance of night-scented jessamine, known as nichtalouloudia by the Greeks.|
Thunderstorms are forecast for tomorrow and Thursday so the Judas Curse may well resort to the cliché 'It was a dark and stormy night...'
Have a good week.
