|The meltemi has blown the haze away and the horizon is back, for a while at least.|
|This is a photograph of a venerable old blue Mercedes which came off the Blue Star this morning, as seen from the balcony of the Symi Visitor Accommodation office|
|Pedi looking remarkably empty for August. One can must make out the distant hills of Turkey across the water.|
|A 'deka-okto' looking for breakfast among the paving stones.|
|An unusual art deco balcony support. Most of the houses on the Kali Strata are 19th century so this was evidently a much more recent addition.|
|About half way down the steps widen out into a square. The large white house is actually much older than most of the other houses on the Kali Strata and has some Ottoman ornamentation above the balcony door where the sheets are drying.|
|Meanwhile, up in Chorio the cats and chickens are enjoying peaceful co-existence at the bend in the road.|
|The prickly pears continue to flourish.|
|And the church on the corner has a new custodian.|
The heat and humidity are starting to ease off now. Midday temperatures are in the mid-thirties, falling to around 26 degrees at midnight so there is still no need for a shawl or jacket in the evenings. The quality of the light is changing and the shadows lengthening - a reminder that we are only a month away from the equinox.
Have a good weekend.
