And so begins another season onboard Interlude...

Chris and I have been back in Turkey since April 9th, mostly doing Spring boat projects and settling back into the relaxed pace that we enjoy so much when we're out here.

We finally left the marina in Gocek late yesterday afternoon after waiting much of the day for the rain to subside. Our destination was Ciglik Koyu, a small bay that we discovered and stayed in for several days last Fall. It offers great protection, crystal clear water and fabulous scenery. And other than 1-2 day tripper boats that visit for a few hours each afternoon, the place the usually secluded. The only disappointment was that the rocky beach was littered with plastic trash. So I got up early this morning and went ashore to do a little "spring cleaning". Filled an entire black garbage bag full of stuff and the beach now looks MUCH better!

We enjoyed a leisurely two-hour sail to Fethiye today and we're swinging at anchor in the large bay just west of the city. There are only about 6-8 other cruisers out here with us tonight, a pleasant contrast to the 30+ boats that are usually here later in the season.

Our plan this year is just to hang out in this part of Turkey again. No destination, no timetable, no worries. We'll be here until early June and then be back in between September & early November. We have three weeks booked with family & friends and we're looking forward to introducing them to this part of the world.

All for now. Happy Easter everyone!
