|Mirror-calm seas in Pedi and beyond to Turkey.|
|Freshly launched from the skids in Harani, a water taxi sets off to come round to Yialos.|
|For a change I took a different route down this morning, turning off the Kali Strata about half way down to take the zigzag path past the high school and down, via the ramp passed our old office.|
|A grape vine tangled over an orange bougainvillea. The plumes hanging down like pipe-cleaners are actually grape blossom trusses, humming with bees.|
|Symi is so steep in places, sometimes the path ahead looks as though one is going to step off a cliff into the blue beyond.|
|A random composition of mats and petunias.|
|The cruising season has started.|
|Fuschias on the taverna steps.|
The weather is calm and sunny with temperatures in the mid-twenties and set to rise. There isn't even a rumour of rain on the horizon so we are likely to have non-stop sunny days from now until October. The children went back to school today and everyone is busy. The water taxis are back in their line up below the Symi Visitor Accommodation office window and the beach tavernas will soon be opening, initially with a modest menu of refreshments which will gradually expand to full menus as demand increases.

Have a good week!
