>> Monday, January 25, 2016 – Blue Star Ferries, Dodecanese Seaways, shipping strikes, Weather on Symi in January
|The water boat and the trading caique, tucked up in Pedi to ride out the storms.|
|Meanwhile, down in the Pedi valley the summer daisies are starting to flower.|
|Weeds among the ruins in the top of Chorio. There are also a couple of cats lurking in the vegetation. Those black plastic pipes duct the water from the main reservoirs down to the cisterns of the individual houses.|
|I wonder what happened to the rest of this door.|
|A very empty Yialos.|
Unfortunately there is another 48 hour ferry strike scheduled for this week which will disrupt the Blue Star. If it follows the same program as last week, what will happen is the Blue Star will come through as usual on Wednesday morning and then sit out the strike in Rhodes, leaving Rhodes and coming through Symi again late on Friday night. Still on the subject of ferries, the Dodecanese Seaways timetable has been updated to the end of March which is effectively the end of winter. Does this mean that the end is in sight? We certainly hope so as we are now receiving lots of emails from people wanting to book their summer holidays.
Have a warm dry weekend.
