Pedi Valley, Dried Plants, St Nicks and Wine Night

An earlyish night leads to an earlyish morning which leads to being able to see such glorious sights as this first thing…
Walked down the Pedi valley. Saw this construction site… 
…these dried up beautiful flower heads… 
…these dried up thistles… 
…these dried up thistles with down and flowers still going… 
…this transport of delight which Su instantly coveted… 
… before we got on the taxi boat and headed off…
…past the Tilly Mint yacht moored in the bay… 
…looking back at the Chorio above the Pedi Valley and Pedi Bay… 
…we pulled into St Nicholas beach again … 
…which was delightfully empty after yesterday's quite "busy" crowds… 
…waiting for the taxi boat back to Pedi at the end of the afternoon, we watched this kayak pootling about… 
…back in Pedi, Su poited out this abandoned item of clothing - well spotted!… 
…walked back past the mystery construction site. It looks like a hotel/apartment complex to me… 
…on the road up from Pedi, noticed these young pine trees weeping resin… 
…at the chicken complex, spotted this lone turkey with its lovely pale blue neck… 
…home for a quick shower and preparation of supper before heading off to the Symi Dream wine night (which is my excuse for such a late posting of the blog tonight!)
This day a year ago, we saw this helicopter coming in to land and lots of military type activity - the rumour we heard was that it was the Greek Minister of Navigation arriving!
