26-31 March 2006
A holiday visit to Turkey, centred around the total eclipse of the sun on 29
March, but with time for relaxing and a bit of sight-seeing too.
On Sunday evening, the view from the patio of our villa in the village of Yeşilöz
Looking to the sea
A panoramic view of the swimming pool
In March, with the air temperature peaking at 20°C, the swimming pool was always
going to be cold, and at 13°C (55°F) it was, but it would have been such a waste not to use it. Stephen is
first to take the plunge
Lucy in the pool. Although cold, it was very pleasant, and we went swimming on
three of our five days in Yeşilöz
The River Yeşilöz as it reaches the sea
The busy beach!
On Thursday evening, Stephen on the harbour-front at Alanya, with the prominent
red tower on the left, and the old city walls visible snaking up the hill
Lucy looks across the harbour
More from Turkey with a visit to the Roman
city of Anemurium...
