|One of the two tavernas down in Pedi, now open for business.|
|Taverna cats are a feature of the Greek taverna dining experience, particularly if you are eating fish.|
|Wild greens in abundance for feeding chickens and rabbits.|
|The grass is already running to seed. In a few weeks all this lush vegetation will be gone.|
|Chomp! This pretty little goat is enjoying her breakfast of fresh daisies and thistles.|
|The wild flowers are reaching the end of their lifespan, flowering profusely with a view to making as much seed as possible before the plants shrivel and die in the summer heat.|
|The new herb and coffee shop that has opened on the Kali Strata, opposite the Symi Dream Shop. If you want freshly ground Greek coffee to take home with you, this is the place to buy it.|
|An early megayacht.|
|The view from my window is starting to change. Don't be fooled by that cloudy sky!|
The Easter rush has past and many visitors are heading for home once again. Meanwhile preparations for the season continue with more shops opening up every day, not necessarily for business but to get things cleaned, painted and tidied up. Windows and shutters need washing, walls painting and the damp of several months of rainy weather dried off and aired out. The banks and the post office are busy after the 4 day break and the lanes reverberate with random bangs as children use up the last of their Easter arsenal. The Panagia Skiadeni has just pulled in with day trippers from Rhodes and fresh supplies for the supermarkets.
Have a good week.
