Some More Summer Postcards from Symi

The rooftops of Chorio

The Castro as seen from Lieni.  Properties in this area include the Cottage, the Two Fishes and Villa Wookie.

Fat figs ripening in the summer sun.

Prickly pears, figs and capers share space with scaffolding planks in this ruin that has been turned into a builder's yard.

The Windmill restaurant in Chorio, featuring art work by Ian Haycox.

The Billboard in Chorio - how to find out what's on and when on Symi -
and sometimes a record of what you have missed.

Pomegranates tumbling over a wall off the Kali Strata.

A neatly painted Symi house is a work of art.

Have a good week.

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.
