Just Some Pictures Of Turkey… (2013)

Turkey was considerably warmer than Moscow and it was really nice to get a break from the snow and more snow. It was really too cold to swim and Sveta who is a water baby at heart tried. It was fun to watch her stare at the water and after putting her big toe into the cold sea, she gave up and wrapped back up in a blanket. It was warm in the air at times but water takes much longer to warm up…

The photos below are just a few pictures of the hundreds we took and they give a fair example of what the area we stayed at looked like. It was strawberry fields everywhere. They had strawberry stands all along the roads and I am sure those strawberries that you eat at the store right now are coming from these fields. They made domed green houses and inside are the biggest monstrous strawberries that you have seen.  The last picture is one of a farm home and the white tents are greenhouses for strawberries…

Land snails were everywhere and one of them stopped long enough to ask me to take his picture. I got some great shots as he said cheese and left a happy snail…

We were surrounded by mountains in the distance, except for the beach side! It was clean, clear and crisp as we walked to towns and the beach during our stay. It did rain a few times and that just made the air even better, as the temperature stayed around a non humid 20 C…

It was a good trip to recharge the batteries and now it is time to get ready for spring in Moscow… 🙂
