>> Thursday, October 2, 2014 – Blue Star Ferries, life on Symi in October, name days, October weather
|One of the many small rural chapels on the island, cheerfully decorated to celebrate its name day earlier this week.|
|One does not have to rise very early to see the dawn at this time of the year. It is very dark in the mornings now and some parts of the island are in shadow for much of the day due to the steep hills and cliffs.|
|Not much yachting activity around the clock tower. The little hire boats have been packed away for another year and there are few gulets passing this way now.|
|The Cypriot cruise ship Salamis Filoxenia in Symi on Tuesday morning, none the worse for her adventures last week.|
|A local fishing boat returning to Yialos, dwarfed by the massive car ferry, the Blue Star Diagoras from Piraeus.|
|There are still enough people around to put together some excursions and the taxi boats are still running, albeit with far few passengers and they seem to be kitted out for bird watching and botanising rather than sunbathing!|
Have a good weekend.
