We are supposed to be at sea on November 20th, en route to Israel, but instead stop at Rhodes. We chose a bus tour around the island for our shore excursion. John and Renee chose a hilly climb. One of the highlights of the bus tour was supposed to be the Colossus of Rhodes, but what a disappointment. We didn't get closer than several blocks away, and our stop was only the few minutes our bus was stopped at a stop light.

The visit to Rhodes got me to thinking about the Rhodes stitch, and remembering that I have a Rhodes stitch pattern at home that I haven't started yet. I'll have to pull it out and get started.
