Day 6, Free day, Thessaloniki,Greece
Today’s main activity consisted of playing by the pool in the hotel. The lads took a well-deserved break! It was a fun-filled day for all as there were many choices of things to do, such as sun-bathe, shop, walk, play ball games in the pool and so on.
Tonight we are going out to a restaurant in town to take a break from the food at the hotel. The boys are under strict orders to return to their rooms by 10.30pm. Any massages from our sports massager will be done before then. We are extremely lucky to have Vicki on board, when our swimmers have any muscular discomfort or pain; Vicki works her magic fingers on them!
We have received many texts and fax messages from well-wishers. On behalf of the team, I want to thank you all. It makes a great difference to the team when they know that the deaf community of Ireland is behind them and giving them their much needed support. It is a morale booster for the team. Keep them coming!
Many of you have asked when the team will be coming home. They will be arriving at Dublin airport at 8.55pm on Sunday 25th June.
