Ashore first time in two years
20 February 2012 | Yacht Marin, Marmaris Turkey
Winter to date
Facilites here are excellent as is the social scene. Haven't made it to stitch'n'bitch? yet... Three days a week I catch the early ferry into town with my super fit and lovely friends/trainers and we run the five miles back along the waters edge. It is a beautiful run. Martyn cycles the same route every day. So we are fit and enjoying Asia Minor. Marmaris itself is probably hideous in season as it is a busy resort but its very pleasant otherwise and the people are so friendly. Plus the market fruit and veg are spoiling us for anywhere else. Can't imagine what I would do with a cabbage the size of a fender!!
Pleiades is out of the water today for a bottom de-barnacle. Think Martyn's might need it too!! On with the work clothes.
"Bir, Icky, oush, dirt, besh". Turkish isn't improving. The winter has flown past. Couple of interludes home for xmas and a skiing trip plus outings including Mugla (a village in the mountains); camel wrestling (where it really feels like Asia); Ephesus; (still preferred Delphi) Selcuk (good market); pretty village of Sirince; quick trip to Rhodes (back to Greece). Plus regular Sunday lunch walks etc.
When anyone asks where our favourite place has been we change our answer every time... But we are loving Turkey...so far
