Ok, here is our account of one unforgettable wrong turn on our trip.  After our lunch in the Rhodes courtyard, we then headed out to the beach for a little nap.  (Pictures to come).

After a little bit, I woke up and started looking around.  About 30 yards away, something just caught my attention.  I noticed a rather rotund, shirt-less older person sitting down, talking to another senior.  I was still a little groggy from my nap, but something in my mind kept on going off.  Suddenly it hit me: the older dude was not a dude, but a lady!  I'd been looking at a topless, obese geriatric woman!!  "Ohh, my eyes!"

Needless to say, Rebekah and I got off that beach as fast as we could.  But the damage had already been done.  I will forever bear on my mind visual proof that topless beaches, regardless of what seventh-grade boys may think, are a BAD idea.

Ha! That song is just wrong! But the story is funny. I too had the unfortunate experience of ending up on a beach with partially nude people in the south of France. Not something I care to experience again. I'm enjoying reading about your trip. Hearing about Greece brings back memories for me. You & Rebekah are making lasting memories. It's wonderful you are able to do so much together.
