Day 13- Cruise Day 3!

Rhodes, Greece My Birthday!!!

sunny 30 °C

Today I turned 12!!! We had another early start and we boarded out tender boats to go to shore. We drove to Lindos, where we hiked up the stairs toward Lindos Acropolis. The view was over St. Paul's bay, and the water was so clear you could see rocks 80m up! We went through the old medieval village dedicated to Athenia, the goddess of Wisdom. The village was perched on top of a cliff, so you could basically see the whole island from up there. The village was destroyed from a mass earthquake, so when the archeologists came to excavate the site, most buildings were in pieces. Afterwards, we took a donkey down the hill to the town of Lindos. My donkeys' name was Maria. Although, he didn't say "Hee-Haw!" We then took a bus to the citadel of the Knights. This was an old medieval town too, surrounded by a wall, with castles and shops inside. We then took a tender boat back to the ship, where we had lunch. Then we went back to shore to have free-time. We went to a beach, and there was a diving board 100m off shore!!! Me and Grandy went in, although it was freezing, but we got used to it. The water was crystal clear, and instead of sand their was rocks so we had rock-skimming competitions. We went back to the boat, and had dinner where the crew at the restaurant sang happy birthday and gave me a cake. We then went to the highest point of the ship, where I had a monk tail and we played cards. Nanny won. Again. Overall, it was definitely a birthday to remember. Tomorrow is our last day and we go to Crete and finally, Santorini!!!
