>> Friday, July 15, 2016 – authentic Greek island holidays, last minute accommodation, quiet Greek islands, Symi French connection, Symi in July
|A peaceful morning in Pedi. The number of yachts has thinned out considerably now that Eid is over and the majority of Turkish yachts have departed.|
|It is quiet, even off Harani.|
|The Blue Star Paros, glimpsed through a lane near the Symi Visitor Accommodation office. The vine spreading across the street belongs to a tiny ouzerie that serves traditional drinks and mezzes.|
|8.30 a.m. on Friday morning in Yialos.|
|Zooming in on Lemonitissa, you can see the scaffolding as the church is being repainted. Lemonitissa studio and apartment are screened by the trees on the right.|
|Grapes ripening in a courtyard on the Kali Strata.|
|An invisible cat in Chorio. I don't think he realises that the ears give the game away.|
Meanwhile the summer season continues to be very much quieter than usual. There are far fewer families on the island than is usual for this time of the year and most of the visitors seem to be couples. Temperatures on Symi are in the high thirties as the humidity is high. Apparently the meltemi is blowing hard in the Aegean but we are not feeling its affects here and the horizon is lost in the summer haze.

Have a good weekend.
