Rainy Days and Mondays

It was a murky overcast Monday morning and a lot warmer than it looks in this photograph.  It is the season for bonfires and the one burning by the helicopter landing pad was quite eye-catching in the gloom. We had a languid rain shower an hour later that did little to clear the air.

Calm, grey and quite empty - Mouragio and Harani at 8 this morning.

The Kali Strata this morning.

Brilliant bougainvilleas providing a welcome splash of colour in the gloom.

The May Day flowers have faded but the red ribbon lingers on.

Doing a little pruning.

A comfortable place to snooze.

Day trippers from Rhodes enjoying a seafood lunch in Yialos.

Winter clothes at one of the oldest-established dress shops in Yialos.

The view from Symi Visitor Accommodation at 1 p.m. today.  Fresh fruit and vegetables being delivered to the greengrocer in the lane, under the watchful eye of the proprietor's tiny daughter.

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.
