A Wonderful Tapestry

The view from the balcony at Symi Visitor Accommodation today - much nicer than ...

... a month ago!

We are starting to see occasional cruising yachts.

The Kali Strata is a wonderful tapestry of different kinds of Symi stone.  In the summer one does not notice the different coloured stones but at this time of the year, when they have been scoured clean by the rain, all the different colours and textures are revealed.

Agios Thanassis, one of the many parish churches in Chorio, has quite a large cat population.

It would seem that they are fed by whoever lives in the house on the right.

Where's my breakfast?

The Mona Lisa, peaking round a corner on the Kali Strata.  Symi can always give you something that is unexpected.

It is a bright and sunny day on Symi.  Odd clouds are still drifting about and showers are forecast for today and tomorrow but at the moment everything is shining in the clear sunshine.  There is much scrubbing, painting, airing and general spring-cleaning going on, including in our office. We apologise for the interruption in the webcam.  It had to be unplugged for a while as essential maintenance was being done in the office. Things are returning to normal now and I am no longer shrouded in dust sheets.  You may tell us what you think of our new decor when you come in to see us this summer!

Have a good week.

What does it say on the steps leading up to the Mona Lisa? I wondered that last year.

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.
