|The view from room 305 at the Hermes Hotel in Mandraki, Rhodes last Sunday.|
|A rainbow over the Blue Star in Akandia, taken from room 305 at the Hermes in Mandraki.|
|The goldfish seem to have made it through the winter in this pond in Mandraki. Those are old stone cannonballs. Rhodes is littered with them and they are dotted all over the town.|
|A cat snoozing on a reed mat at the bottom of the Kali Strata. The little boutiques and gift shops are all still closed for the winter and only essential shops are open.|
|An almond tree in full bloom near Lemonitissa church.|
|A neatly painted fishing boat. In the summer this is where the excursion boats berth at the head of the harbour.|
|A French owned traditional Turkish boat visiting Yialos earlier this week.|
|Wild cyclamens in Lieni. They have a very delicate perfume.|
|Free range and proud of it!|
The days are getting longer and the intervals between rainy days are widening. In a few more weeks preparations will commence for the season but at the moment it is still too windy to do much out of doors and all the doors and shutters are swollen from one of the wettest winters anyone can remember.
Dodecanese Seaways have announced that they are releasing their ferry schedule for the summer today but when I checked it was still only up to 31 March on their website.
Have a good weekend.
