A Wet and Windy Easter?

Happy St George's Day! Of course Greek George's will only be able to celebrate next week, on Bright Monday, as name days are put on hold for Big Week.

The internet has been more off than on this week and even when it is working seems to be crawling along at a snail's pace. I will keep this short so I can post it before the link goes again.

It looks as though we may well be having a wet and windy Easter and even snow is forecast for the high ground on the Greek mainland. After two days of strong sand winds and ferry disruptions things are much calmer today and the haze which obscured Nimos earlier this morning is lifting. Contact lense wearers have really been suffering from the dust in the air lately and, looking at the long range forecast, the next week or so looks no better.

Symi is much busier with lots of new arrivals and we are full at the Hotel Fiona. Last night Pedi Bay was full of bobbing mast head lights. There has been a lot of yachting activity this week as boats have struggled to find secure and comfortable berths in the strong easterly winds that have rolled into Yialos and Pedi.
More news the next time there is a stable connection!

At the risk of sounding smug, it's bright blue skies and sunshine here at last! There is still a nip in the air though in the evenings but hopefully winter is getting edged out by Spring. The shrubs outside my door have started to sprout new growth so maybe they know that better weather is ahead.

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.
