Flowers, Into Town and Harvest Moon

Out with Bella this morning on a path between terraces of houses, found these boards from a catering establishment.
The sun struggled to fulfil the forecast and come out to shine.
Buddleia flowers still flowering even as most of them die back.
Our neighbours' sunflowers are still going strong.
These ivy flowers were the support for a delicate lacework of spiders' webs.
We went down into town, walking past the "Min" or the Rheumatism Hospital, which was founded in 1738 as a hospital for the poor.
We went to the Little Theatre to see "About Time", the most recent Richard Curtis film. Not his best, and rather too sickly sweet for our taste.
Outside the cinema, the clouds had cleared a bit.
Down the hill, we thought our luck was in!
"Free" as in no charge to use a debit card...
On the way home, passed this car with personalised numberplate - I wonder if the owner is actually called Rio Oat?
This evening, a bright full harvest moon visible despite the glare from the sodium street light at the bottom of the street.
This day a year ago, we enjoyed our first full day of our trip on Symi and spent a very nice time up at Nos beach drinking beer and watching the boats come in and out.
