A Brief Hiccup

The big weather system that is swirling across Europe is heading this way and rain and strong winds are forecast for tonight and tomorrow. We could certainly use the rain but no one needs the gales. At this stage it seems as though this will only be a brief hiccup and the weather will improve again from Sunday.

One of my favourite sheep, an amiable black ewe, has just given birth to twins. She lives in a field in Lieni. As you can see from the photograph, the ram was probably white!

The other photograph, taken yesterday from quite high up, shows Pedi bay in the afternoon sun. Note how clearly one can see the opposite coast at this time of the year. Only two visiting yachts – an elegant black schooner on the quay and ‘Cockatoo’, an elderly Admiralty pinnace.

Have a good 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.
