Bozburun to Orhaniye
03 July 2019
We went into Bozburun harbour for a day to catch up on some grocery shopping and laundry. There is a restaurant there where we were greeted like long lost friends by Memet, Ozman and Lynne. We have been in here a few times now. We get to sit on the yacht and see our washing drying above the adjacent restaurant, towels, sheets and undies for all to see. Did we mention the food is always good here as well?
We spent a second night back at nearby Sogut as the forecast was for a windy night and this is a sheltered place to be.
30 June – 2 July
We are not travelling long distanced at the moment and have been exploring along the coastline in and out of lots of lovely little bays and anchoring overnight in a couple of them. We are just cooking on board, sometimes firing up our charcoal BBQ (see Gallery). Days are spent in and out of the water and our morning swims are getting longer.
On Monday night we were anchored below what is left of a Byzantine fort built on a small island within a protected bay (see Gallery). Just across the water is a small town with lots of people enjoying the water and beach. The weather is still good, today 29 degrees after 24 overnight. Very calm overnight and early in the morning with a moderate breeze through the day, the water temperature is around 27 – accurately measured with the meat thermometer.
