Another morning ride on the bikes into the old town proved to be an expensive exercise for us. Ric had dicovered a wonderful bottle shop with the most amazing range of wines and spirits from Greece and all over the world. Knowing the prices for liquor in Turkey were a lot more expensive than anywhere else and as we were going to spend a lot more time in Turkey next year, Ric decided to stock up here and fill the bilges of the boat. I am sure the water level went down quite a bit on the Tangaroa after this exercise. Having a quick decadent lunch of crepe suzettes and good coffee, we did some food stocking up on the way back to the boat. Our dear friends Susie and Don arrived on schedule and we were thrilled they were able to come and join us for a week. Not knowing the restaurants of Rhodes, we decided our guests would enjoy the food and the atmosphere at Romios where we had dined a couple of nights ago with our new friends from Newcastle. We all enjoyed the evening and once again the service and food was great. Calling in to the ‘Fish Doctor’ nearby was quite an experience for our guests. Having your dry skin on your feet nibbled by small fish in a tank is a novel way to end an evening!!! This is very popular for tourists visiting Greece.
