Strolling with a Symi Seagull

Symi is such a laid back sort of place that sometimes even the seagulls prefer to walk along in the shade.  I followed a different route to work the other morning and found I had an unusual walking companion.

A small but purposeful figure walking along ahead of me, admiring the view.

Just plodding along.

Walking on concrete isn't that easy with webbed feet but distance is being covered.

Abreast of the little white buoy.

A few metres further along but still going strong.

Ah, the pavement at last.

At this point we parted company because I realised that if I continued at pedestrian seagull pace I was probably going to be seriously late for work.  I don't know what his plans were for the rest of the day but if he continued on his way he is probably in Nimborio by now.

Have a good weekend.

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.
