Symi June Colours

The opulent purple of  the globe artichoke.

The iridescent blues of the Aegean.

The pastel palette of Symi harbour in early morning.

The blues, greens and golds of hills and harbour.

Terracotta, ochre and cypress green.

Nets, warps and drums on a traditional fishing boat. The Symi Visitor Accommodation office is in the background.

The Poseidon excursion boat and the water taxis, all lined up and ready to take you out on that gleaming blue sea.

Even the jolly red and yellow of the silly Noddy train .

Red fish and cool marble.

Negotiating over garlic.

Oleanders and bougainvillea outside the gates of Iapetos Village Hotel.

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.
