A Clear December Day

Everyone is out making the most of the sunshine today. Wet carpets draped over railings and blankets dripping over balconies. If you look very carefully at the Turkish mountains in the view of Pedi you can see a white patch in the left-middle of the back row, just to the right of the highest peak - the first snows have fallen. I am hoping that Santa will bring me a decent zoom lense, but I have a feeling he is more likely to be dropping off new wellington boots! Models of caiques are a popular Christmas decoration in the islands and the one in the picture is one of my favourites.

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.
