Gulets, Yachts, Ferries and Megayachts - a Typical July in Symi

Wall to wall gulets in Yialos on Tuesday morning.  They could berth round the clock tower as there were no early morning ferry arrivals expected on Tuesday.

The view from my office balcony at Symi Visitor Accommodation on Tuesday.

Everyone hanging about waiting for the Blue Star to come in on Wednesday morning.  If you look carefully just to the right of the clock tower there is a line up of small white motor boats. These are for hire by the day during the peak weeks of the season.

A different view through the 'peep-hole' on the Kali Strata.  My preference is the elegant 'gentleman's yacht' pulling out in the centre of the photograph rather than the example of the brutalist school of naval architecture on the right!

The Blue Star arriving, yachts departing for another day's sailing - a typical Wednesday in July.

About this Blog

I sailed into Panormitis Bay, Symi, by chance one windy July day in 1993 and have been here ever since. The locals tell me that this is one of the miracles of St Michael of Panormitis. A BA graduate with majors in English, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, the idea of living in what is to all intents and purposes an archaeological site appeals to me. Not as small as Kastellorizo, not as touristy as Rhodes, Symi is just the right size. I live on a small holding which my husband and I have reclaimed from a ruin of over-grazing and neglect and turned into a small oasis over the course of the past 22 years. I also work part-time for Symi Visitor Accommodation, helping independent travellers discover and enjoy Symi's simple pleasures for themselves.
