We were able to sunbathe until we got to Patmos later in the afternoon.

At Patmos we had to take tender boats to get to shore, these are like lifeboats, the ship anchors in deep water outside the port and you disembark into these tender boats which then take you to the wharf. We took a taxi up the hill to the St John's Church of the Revelation and then the Monastery, right at the top. Would have been a fantastic view had it not been misty. Later our driver drove us back down and we had a look around the village of Patmos before getting back on the tender boat and back to the Aegean I.

We left Patmos at 9.00 pm bound for Rhodes - a place we were looking forward to as someone we spoke to who had visited Greece 10 times and Rhodes was his favourite place.

After dinner we were treated to the Greek night. It was a bit disappointing after last night's show, and not nearly as good as the Greek night we had experienced in Athens.

So then it was on to the Casino. Lucky me...I played the roulette and won 49 euros. I was the only winner from our group. The slots and blackjack didn't pay out at all!
