>> Monday, July 14, 2014 – last minute accommodation, Life on Symi in July, Symi Visitor Accommodation, the Kali Strata, the Kastro, webcam
|This three storey mansion overlooking the Kali Strata and the harbour is exactly 100 years old according to the date in the plaster on its pediment.|
|A convergence of lanes at the bottom of the Kali Strata. This was taken early in the morning, on my way to work, but in the evenings this area is humming with activity.|
|How to find the Kali Strata. Look for the blue steps in the harbour and then take the left fork past the carpenter's shop. The ones that go up next to the Silk boutique are a diversion and will only take you to some ruins.|
|Yachts milling about in the Meltemi breeze in Yialos this morning. The wind is bringing some welcome coolness to Symi this summer. You can watch this view in real time with our webcam as this is the view from the Symi Visitor Accommodation office balcony.|
|The colourful chandlery at the bottom of the stairs to our office. Dino sells an astonishing array of goods, including brass door knockers, goat bells and agricultural implements in addition to fishing rods, flags and yacht chandlery.|
|Lemonitissa church looking down on the town from the Kastro. At this angle, viewed from the side balcony of our office in Yialos, Lemonitissa studio and apartment are masked by the trees to the right of the church.|
We are now very busy as July is high season on Symi and there is a lot of coming and going, not to mention last minute bookings and this morning I actually received an email from someone who is wanting to plan their holiday around Easter 2016. Now that is what I call forward planning!
Have a good week.
