10 June – Rhodes

Had coffee on the balcony and looked out at Rhodes. This is a very beautiful place! The temperature reached 42 degrees before it was even 9am. Ouch! Then we went for breakfast. Rhodes Town was only a very short walk away. There was a bit of a local beach in the port with some fish and people swimming in it (Even though there are signs everwhere saying not to). Lots of traffic right here on this beach, it looked dirty to be honest. We went on a magical mystery walk. Had a potter around and ended up in a café where we got the biggest coke ever which was ace until it was time to go and we were told 3 cokes is 18 euros….robbers. Lesson from this is NEVER ever buy from somewhere that doesn’t have prices, especially if they are at the most popular corner of a place and are touting for business! But aside from that it was a lovely place that we would go back to one day. Bought some strawberries and cherries for our room. Laura bough a voodoo doll and I got some generic tat ornaments – oh and a lovely pashmina. Back to the boat. Early tea and then we went to the marquee where they were playing bingo before the show. Freedom to Move tonight doing their 80s show. Excellent stuff.

Have to mention the band on Ocean Village 2. Jet Set. I enjoyed them very much, they seemed to be able to fit in with whatever was going on, and had a very wide repertoire!

Then me and Paul went to the Players bar to see if they were showing the football. No such luck. Saw the end of a rugby game and had a look around the casino. I spotted a couple of Video Poker machines, YES!! Had a stroll on the deck before bedtime.

Rhodes summed up, beautiful, quite but bloody expensive!
