September Vlog

Good Morning Friends

I hope that your September has been a good one, can you believe it is October on Tuesday!

I had a fantastic relaxing holiday in Bodrum Turkey with Rick.  It was just what the doctor ordered after such a very busy year with one thing and another.

The Salmakis hotel was beautiful and the views over the bay was gorgeous.
We took the taxi boat to the Marina at Bodrum and did some shopping and had a good mooch around.
We didn't really want to come home in all honesty.

Sharing a few photographs with you!


This is the view over the harbour from the hotel.


The Bodrum Marina


Found a shop that sells Cadence products 😀


Sule the owner, some fabulous MDF as well as lots of lovely products.
Spent quite a bit in the 2 visits 😄😄


My Rick


Me just before we went for evening meal


Of course I had to share one of the both of us!
