Symi Colours in October

The clouds are back, the shutters are up and Pedi is very quiet.
bougainvillea blues
The bougainvilleas are putting on a fine show. I photographed this one in Chorio yesterday, just below the museum. The featured image for this blog is the same location.

A few weeks ago I went on a sunset cruise on the Diagoras to celebrate a friend’s 30th year of visiting Symi. This is Maroni bay, a swimming stop before anchoring at Agios Emilianos for supper.

squill and sheep
Squills are incredibly tenacious plants. This one is growing out of the top of a dry stone wall near my office in Pedi. Note the sheep and goat in the background.

  1. Nice photos, Adriana. I haven’t been in Greece in the Fall in many, many years, and I am finding it interesting. Rhodes is not FULL of tourists, although today there were at least three cruise ships in, with passengers crowding through the Old City. If you and Nicholas come over before the 19th, let’s meet up and go to Basmati. It is located a very short distance from our apartment. Best to you both, Marcia Sent from my iPad
