Random February Photos

Fresh fish on the quay.

Almond blossom - before yesterday's hail turned it all into confetti.

Anyone for coffee?

The old Pharmacy in Chorio served as the Chorio clinic for a few years in the late 90s, hence the old examination couch.  The building is now being restored.  If you ever see it open, there are some amazing old bottles and jars from its old life as an apothecary, when pharmacists had to mix their own potions and pills.

After an extremely short winter break the Valonia oak in Lieni is already covered in buds and new leaves.  A clear indication that temperatures are far warmer this year than usual for February.
It has been very wet on Symi these past two days and this morning when I left I did not want to risk bringing my camera down in case it got wet so I just brought the card down to see what I had.  You see it above!

The rain is expected to continue until tonight.  The weather should be dry for the weekend including Clean Monday, with more rain expected to move in again on Tuesday.

I shall be back with more photographs for you on Tuesday.

Have a good weekend - and happy carnival to all of you who are celebrating this weekend.

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.
