|Cloud Nine, a luxury mega yacht, dwarfed by the incoming Blue Star Diagoras this morning.|
|The peace and tranquility of Pedi Bay in the early morning.|
|Central Chorio including the Little Blue House, the Taxiarchis Hotel, the Sunrise Cafe and various other well-known holiday landmarks.|
|The Windmill restaurant in Chorio is now open for the summer season.|
|Wild thyme growing amongst the rocks along the road connecting Yialos with Chorio.|
|There are butterflies everywhere at the moment.|
|Over-nighting gulets departing from Yialos in the early morning.|
|The Mouragio and Harani areas of Symi harbour, showing the clock tower, police station, Nireus Hotel, Sofia's House, Merchant House, Aliki Hotel and Tsati bar.|
|The little tug boat that serves the floating crane, bustling back into town for supplies.|
|Cloud Nine docking yesterday afternoon with a yacht passing under full sail in the background.|
A major piece of news is that the clinic in Chorio is now closed. Apparently Euromedica, a private hospital in Rhodes, is going to be opening up in the Chorio premises, providing an economical alternative to having to take a day off work and go to Rhodes on the ferry every time one needs to see a specialist. Dr Xambikos Zanthos will be permanently based at the clinic in Yialos, next to St John's church, instead of dividing his time morning and evening between the two premises.
Have a lovely weekend.
