Pedi All the Way Today on Symi

Lovely light on the hillside as the sun went down last night.
Gentle clouds a little later.
Up with the bells and the chickens to another glorious morning. 
We set off down to Pedi and encountered this pretty cat sitting in the shade of a motor bike. 
Just down the hill, met this confident cricket. 
 Lovely bougainvillea seen through a fence.
The digger down at Pedi was in operation today on the new development. We haven't yet been able to find out what is being built down there.
Made it as far as the stretch of beach next to Taverna Katsaras - taken by this forest of beach umbrellas, and the view beyond.
The entertainment of the day was watching the launching of this boat - they got a cheer once they managed it. 
After a dip and lunch at the taverna, we managed to get some more beach time before having a beer at the Pedi Beach Hotel and enjoying the clarity of the view across to Turkey. 
This day a year ago, the temperature on Symi was at last as warm as that in the UK (this turned out to be the UK's summer).
