Heavenly Symi Blue

I photographed these magnificent morning glories scrambling over the walls below Giorgio and Maria's taverna in Chorio as I walked down the Kali Strata to work today. Now that Greece is in the grips of the first serious heatwave of the year and Symi is sizzling the flowers are at their best very early in the morning, before the sun shrivels them up.
It is very quiet in the harbour as everyone who can has gone to the beach. In the distance I can see the splash of swimmers off NOS beach and there are a few fishermen sitting on the end of the quay by the clock tower.

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.
