My Holiday in Turkey

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

It sure is nice to be home but Rick and I had a fabulous holiday.  We arrived in Turkey on Tuesday evening to rain, thunder and lightening.  We got soaked to the skin before we got to our hotel in Kemer.

Unfortunately the first 5 days of our holiday wasn't brilliant weather wise but we made the most of our time by having a Turkish bath and massage.  The hotel had its own sauna, steam room and therapy pool which we visited everyday. Off course I had a good excuse to go shopping too!  Even though it was very windy and had a chill factor to it the sun was shining and we had blue skies.

From Monday we had 5 days of glorious clear blue skies, the sea was lovely and calm and so clear you could see the bottom and the little fishes swimming around.  The temperature on Friday our last day was up to 39 degrees which was very hot and I loved it!

Our last meal before we left to come home.

I hope you have enjoyed some of my holiday photographs and looking forward to next year now.

Thank you for visiting today
 Hugs xxxx

Looks lovely Linda, glad you had a good time. I had a day trip to Marmaris from Rhodes a couple of years ago and it was horrible. The sea crossing coming back to Rhodes was really scary as the sea was rough and Marmaris was awful especially in the market, they wouldn't leave us alone and when we didn't by anything they were quite threatening. We stick to Greece. I no there are some lovely place in Turkey and I would go but OH says a big fat NO. Nice to see you back I thought FB was quiet without you.
