Enjoy these quiet moments

It was a bit cooler last night. The shortening days are starting to have an effect on evening temperatures and it only started to heat up at about 7 this morning when the sun cleared the mountains. It was one of those really still sunrises, the sky and sea the colour of molten lead and the yachts in Pedi all lying quiescent on their anchors. It’s worth getting up early to enjoy these quiet moments.

Meanwhile, down in Yialos, the yachts in the regatta glided away again early this morning. The harbour should be quite busy tomorrow evening though as there is another pop concert in the square and the local children are already out with their marker pens, putting moustaches on the posters!

I'm planning to go to Rhodes tomorrow, on the 6 a.m ferry, as the shopping list is getting longer - and the sales are on! Mind you, no one does any special offers in chicken feed and fence poles!

Have a peaceful weekend.

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.
