A Quick Hello from Symi

The view from the terrace, Lemonitissa Studio in Chorio.

Crumbling glory in Chorio.

Magic clothespegs.

Nature taking hold.

Waiting for breakfast outside a supermarket in Chorio.

Even paint peels more picturesquely on Symi!

A venerable vine on the Kali Strata.
After a weekend of gusty dust storms, thunder showers and the dreaded 'red rain' that covers everything in a fine crust of Saharan sand, the weather is set fair for the next 10 days or at least for as far as the computer projections the meteo sites use can run.  If the webcam goes murky, that is usually the reason!

More people arrived at the weekend to open up their houses and I have had a busy morning of visitors in the office. There is a lot more activity generally in the harbour and where once there was silence punctuated by occasional voices there is now a continuous buzz.

Time to dash for the bus.

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.
