Holiday Photos - Rhodes.

We had already scheduled our post for today before we heard the sad news that two of our close friends had gone to the Rainbow Bridge.

Inigo was such a handsome boy and fought his illness bravely. He was much too young to be called to the Bridge and we will miss him dearly.

Miss Patches from the Great Piney Woods was one of our very first friends and helped us out with our blogging problems when it was all new to us. Although she no longer blogged regularly we still had the occasional updates, and she also fought her battle valiantly. She will also be greatly missed.
Play free, healthy and happily at the Bridge dear friends. You will never be forgotten.

Can you believe mum is still taking over our blog? Well this is what I think of it!

Our next port of call was the beautiful island of Rhodes. We walked around the old walled medieval town which shares it's name with the island.

Hippocrates Square.

The mosque.

Street of the Knights.

Grand Master's Palace. (I think!)

View over the walled town from the ship.

Sunset over Rhodes.

Very interesting about the walled city! Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your vacation.

I am so glad my human does not go anywhere as interesting or pretty as your humans do. That way, I can keep my blog to myself. Hee-hee!

Those are really lovely pictures. What a fun time you must have had.

We were so sorry to hear Inigo was going to the Bridge as we thought he was eating a little and was improving - it rather caught us unawares he was much worse again. We also left a message for Miss Patches family.
Eric you cheered us rather with your cheeky picture - it's a good job you were alert cos Flynn looked as we was in the land of nod.
We enjoyed looking at the holiday pictures though - but we expect you had already seen them!!

Madi and Mom said...

Hugs Madi and Mom

It's so sad about Inigo and Patches.

Hmmm, maybe you could charge your mom when she takes over your blog. Extra treats or something.

Ginger Jasper said...

Such sad news again today. So much these past few months. We loved looking at your photo's again. Rhodes was another place the folks liked and would go back to. Hugs GJ x

Sagira said...

SO sad and in shock to hear about Inigo. Last I heard he was doing better.

Very sorry to hear about your other pal as well.

Beautiful photos. That water looks SO blue.

Simba said...

We didn't know Patches, but we are sad for her family. We feel a big loss with Inigo going to the Bridge, because he was a special friend.

You folks' pictures are very nice - Mom and Dad would love to take a trip like that.

The Island Cats said...

Rhodes looks like a beautiful place!!

We also are very sad about Patches and Inigo going to the Bridge. We will miss them very much.

Cat Street Boyz said...

Maybe Patches and Inigo met each other on the other side and are playing together.
Wow, look, more cool photos of where your pawrents are having fun!!!!=^Y^=

Kari said...

What an interesting city. One can definitely see a middle eastern/ Turkish influence. How was shipboard life? The views have to be amazing from the sea.

A sad loss of two friends. We send our love and prayers.

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Yes, we will miss sweet Inigo's presence and Miss Patches purrty face...we have memories now.

Lotsa travels for your humans (were you along?) and lovely of you to share the photos too

Oh, we made an oops on our Sunday comment--you aren't orange--you are ginger...sorry! Orange sounds very 'un-British!
