Monday Morning Blue Skies

A group of Syrian refugee families waiting below the Symi Visitor Accommodation office in the rain on Friday afternoon.

It rained and rained and rained on Friday afternoon.

A calm clear view of Pedi bay with Turkey beyond.

Symi pastoral.

Everything is growing like mad at the moment, like this bougainvillea in Chorio.

A sparkling Monday morning on Symi.

Jasmine on the Kali Strata.

Wedding decorations outside the Old Markets.

My next bike will be a Harley...

The Poseidon in solitary splendour .

The view from the Symi Visitor Accommodation office this morning. Those are cushion covers draped over the foredeck of the Poseidon.

The sphinx on the roof of the patisserie next door to the Symi Visitor Accommodation.
After a week of stormy weather and heavy rain the wind has changed to the north and the skies are the bright Hellenic blue of postcards.  Temperatures have dropped to the low twenties and there is a definite nip in the wind now.  Time to dig out the cardigans and jumpers!   It looks as though the weather will remain fair for the Ochi Day parade on Wednesday this week and the Panormitis festival in two weeks' time.

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.
