It is hot

It is a hot and sunny day on Symi. Cats' paws of wind dab idly at the water and the yachts have given up trying to sail - isolated masts meander across a silver horizon and vanish into the shimmering heat-haze.

It is hot. Hot enough for people to brave the jelly fish at St George and Nanou in pursuit of a little coolth. The thermal rising off the flagstones beneath our offices carries the aroma of vanilla ice cream melting in the eager hands of children.

The idea of walking up the Kali Strata in the heat of the day carries little charm - perhaps I will indulge in the bus after all.

Speaking of buses, it is still the trusty battered green one for the moment. The new one is so shiney out of the box that the plastic wrap is still on the seats!

Have a good week!

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.
