May Postcards from Symi

The bunting was up again at the weekend, this time for a weekend regatta rather than a parade.  I took this photograph just before the municipality's cherry picker, in the middle of the photographer, started to take the flags down.

Monday morning, Yialos, Symi

Tuesday morning, Pedi, Symi

This old windmill in Chorio has been a successful small restaurant for many years.

One of Symi's gracious old neo-classical mansions.

The big yachts are starting to arrive.

Sleeping beauty.

Yialos colours.

Yialos colours too.

The work on the restoration of the customs house is proceeding apace.  The rafters arrived this morning.

Just returned from a week in Symi, and my partner and I completely fell in love with the place (especially as it's tipping it down here in the UK...) Here are some photos, hope you don't mind me posting them here: https://danbiggins.exposure.co/symi-dreams. Love the newsletter by the way :)

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.
