August Postcards from Symi

The view from Symi Visitor Accommodation this morning.

I rather fancy the gentleman's motor yacht on the right.  She'll never get up on the plane and probably doesn't do more than 8 knots but her arrivals and departures are always dignified and elegant.

Multi-tasking - the Windmill restaurant will be closed on Wednesday evening as the proprietor, Rhiannon Wheeler, also has a dancing school on Symi and her troupe are performing for the festival on Wednesday night.
Rehearsing their dance routines in the square.

Hanging out, Symi style.

Another desirable balcony with a view, this time on the Kali Strata.

Dove grey.

The fig season may have been something of a non-event this year, but the prickly pears are abundant.

Early morning meeting at the bins in Lieni.

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.
