Pedi Bay and a Coastal Walk

We slept wonderfully in our little windmill.  The bedroom on the mezzanine invites a perfect breeze through the small windows keeping it nice and cool.  We decide to eat breakfast in the Chora and find a little place called the Olive Tree Cafe.  It is run by two British ladies who take pride in using …

Final Reflections and Farewell to Tilos

Our feet have just about recovered from yesterdays exploration around Rhodes Old Town.  We will be doing something a little less vigourous today especially as we need to catch the ferry to Nisyros later this evening. Taking the route through the St Johns gate again, we pass the medieval church of St Marie du Bourg.  …
