Symi Dream - Living on a Greek island

Up on the roof

Up on the roof

Another quiet weekend, but then there’s no other option. We’re allowed out after today, though we’re not going anywhere until Wednesday and even then only the ATM, pharmacy and supermarket and mainly to pay for the deliveries we’ve had over the last two weeks.

Friday

Saturday

We have been managing to fill our time constructively, though an awful lot of TV has been watched in the later afternoon/evening. Yesterday, we had an online quiz session with a few others via messenger; nine people, five screens showing on one, but I managed to cast the phone to the TV so it was easier to see. Apart from the quiz itself being fun, hilarity was added when a Symi visitor was accidentally invited to the group. A good mistake, don’t get me wrong, but something of a surprise to her as well as us. Funnier still was that she couldn’t back out of the group without everyone closing down their phones and starting again, so she gave us the view from her window and carried on in the background, no doubt wondering what we mad people were up to. (Still waving at you Gwen.)

Sunday

Sunday

The up on the roof title of today’s jotting is because the photos were taken from up there over the weekend. The high winds on Saturday had the house vibrating as they were up to force seven, and Sunday was a misty morning. Today, there are still broken clouds around as the sun starts to rise.
