25 October 2011 | Marmaris, Turkey
Leaving Little Else on her mooring in Loch Craignish and after a very pleasant week entertaining the three children during their October break, on Monday morning Ju and I boarded a flight at Glasgow for Dalaman, Turkey, and a two-week holiday sailing aboard Piper with iur friends June and Steve.
After a long flight and a speedy minibus transfer we found ourselves being greeted at the gate of the Marmaris Yacht Marina by our hosts, who rushed us straight into happy hour at the marina pub/restaurant. It was like an old Lagos cronies reunion, because there were not only June and Steve but also Jacky and Rob from Arwen, and Barbara and Lee from Amour de la Mer and we all repaired to the restaurant and sat eight-strong at a round table and had a great meal. What a terrific birthday bash I had!
Today we went into town by bus and had a great wander around, while tomorrow we're off sailing somewhere. Fantastic! And it's warm!
