Sunset Skies, Music and Rain on Symi

Last night's sunset was unexpected…


In its fading glow, we went along to the Sunrise Kafeneion to meet up with George (and later, Clare) to play some music.
This morning, after another late night (anyone would think we were on holiday!) I was up early enough to catch this view of Pedi Bay.
A leisurely morning, followed by a stroll along to the Olive Tree where we met Joe and Jackie from Scotland, hung out and had a tasty lunch on their terrace looking over towards Nimos as the Spanos boat came in. 
Came back to our apartment via the site of the planned new Horio hospital - on part of the children's playground next to the car park.
Down from that, these donkeys were having a rest before their next endeavours. 
Garden centre on wheels… 
Clothing store on wheels parked up next to it. 
The afternoon clouded over and some serious napping ensued. Went for an early evening walk to clear our heads under grey skies. Admired this incorporation of the rock into this wall.
Under clouds threatening rain, we could see across to Turkey over the top of Nimborio…
… and across to Turkey across from Pedi Bay. 
The rain came and went on and off through the evening, finally giving us a bit more of a soaking on the way back to the apartment after a drink at the Rainbow Bar. Before that we'd wandered around the Horio a little - admired this grand old window design. 
Found ourselves here - the time was three shadows past a raincloud…
New to us was this rather elegant fish design on a newly rendered and painted house. 
This day a year ago, it was our last morning on Symi after four weeks here - waiting to catch the boat to Rhodes for our flight back to the cold (12ºC) UK.
