Pentecost Long Weekend

It is seriously humid on Symi at the moment and the top of the island is covered with mist every night. This morning the clouds were still wrapped around the Vigla when I was walking down to work. There is a bit of a breeze now, down in the harbour, but it is about as refreshing as a steamy bathroom.

The island has been quite busy with the Pentecost long weekend. Lots of Greek tourists and people home from Rhodes to visit their families. The days have been full of exuberant church bells and the evenings a-hum with music and conversation.

The island’s new bus has arrived. It came off the ferry yesterday and should soon be in operation. It is now parked at the bus stop and the door is open, which could be regarded as a good sign!

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.
