This somewhat grainy photo brings back so many good memories. We were camping on the Turquoise Coast of Turkey, right next to the beach. Mornings were spent lying on white sand or swimming in the clearest, bluest water I’ve ever seen. (The word “turquoise” actually comes from the French for “Turkish.”) In the afternoon we walked on the beach or read in the shade, then had tea with British or Australian friends. Dinner was salad with perfect red tomatoes, crisp cucumbers and feta cheese. Strong coffee or tea for dessert. We had not a care in the world.
One evening we looked up to see some campers had pitched a tent on the rocks overlooking the Mediterranean and I snapped this shot of the falling sun. Pure bliss. I told myself to never forget this moment and I never have.
Hope your week’s going well so far.
Sounds like an absolutely divine time. Lovely picture, too!
It really was. Thank you!
I have to agree. 🙂
That is postcard perfect, Carole! Completely captivating.
Wow, thanks, Jackie!
People keep telling me to go to Turkey, either because it’s beautiful or they just want me to leave.
Ha ha! I’m sure they mean it’s beautiful, because it is.
Wow so amazing!
One of my favorite places, ever.
My sister and her family have been there many times and just love it!
Why do I not see it? I’m on my iPad and while I can see all the other photos this one doesn’t appear. So sad. I’ll be back once I’m near my laptop.
Oh, sorry about that. Happens to me with the iPad from time to time too.
