Leaving Rhodes~by Jeremy J Croucher

Part 10 of 20 in “The Aegean Shores’ series


Leaving Rhodes

Another first not seen before
Leaving Rhodes tonight
A big red tug at either end
exerting all their might

Moved the ship out from the berth
into open water
Allowed us to get underway
and moving as we ‘oughta’

Heading westward now we go
Two hundred nautical miles
where the island, Crete, awaits us
with Greek bank holiday smiles
