Sizzling in the Summer Sunshine

The view from my balcony at Symi Visitor Accommodation this morning.  Those no parking beacons didn't really have much of an impact!

Beautiful old wrought iron work.

Symi continues to sizzle in the summer sunshine with day time temperatures around 40 degrees centigrade, dropping to about 30 degrees centigrade at night.  While autumn may be rattling at the windows in Northern Europe and Great Britain, summer has several weeks still to run in the Southern Aegean and it will be a while yet before we start thinking about duvets and heaters.

The Panagia Skiadeni, the big orange car ferry from Rhodes, broke down today and had to turn back - a most unusual occurrence as the Dodecanese Seaways boats are famously reliable.  To fill the gap, Dodecanese Seaways has laid on an extra service this evening with the Dodecanese Express, leaving Rhodes at 18.00 and leaving Symi at 19.15.  For more information, please contact either the shipping company or their agents on Symi, Symi Tours.

If you are on Symi this evening, there is the Symi Dream Monday wine night with the exhibition of Ged Horton's photographs and  you can then meander down the steps and round the corner to see the exhibition of assemblages by Nikolas Zaharias at the Symi Gallery a bit further down the Kali Strata.

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.
