The Sphinx and the Triton

The view from the new Symi Visitor Accommodation office has a mythological flavour...

This aloof sphinx graces the roof top of the house next door to us in the lane. I took this photograph from the side balcony.

And there goes the Triton, laden with happy visitors... The Gorgona is already out for the day and Stavros is busy fitting a railing round the little balcony in front of my window so there is no danger of my making an impromptu appearance in anyone's laundry!

Have a good day.

We do like these regular photographs. They should keep us going until the new webcam arrives. Regular discussions on the new camera's point of view are taking place in the Live Chat Room.

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.
