Views from the Vigla 18 February 2008

On Monday afternoon we went up to the highest point on Symi, the peak of the Vigla. The mountains on the Turkish coast were still hidden by snow clouds but the dying gusts of the gale that brought Greece to a stand still can be seen in the dark patches moving across the water.

Wonderful, Adriana. I've never been energetic enough to climb the Vigla so have not see these views before.

Me too - I must get there some time(perhaps on my visit next month)! Though in my experience one does need a really cold, as well as a clear, day to get views like that.

Summer views can be clear, but probably not as clear as that. I have a photo somewhere of a group on the summit on a particularly windy day - so much so that the ouzo was blowing out of our plastic cups as we took a celebratory 'nip'.

I got some similar ones (although not as good) the year before last from the Panormitis road up on the Vigla. I hasten to say that I got there by truck! I remember thinking how clear the view was over to Datca - not a trace of haze anywhere.

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.
