Antalya Sunrise

We are planning on doing a short trip to Florida for Thanksgiving and while we are not going to see or experience warm waters like we did on this hot day in Turkey, it will be considerably much warmer than what another cold front brings us, which about to come down from Canada and will put most of the East coast into freezing temperatures.

Friday Mystery Photo

Yesterday we had a gloomy day at the beach, so how about today switch to a sunny day? It is Friday after all and weekend is just a few hours away, and it appears to be a sunny one too here in NC, even so not at the beach but that’s ok.

This was for sure hot and sunny day at that beach, but water was perfect and nicely refreshing. Who could complain about that smooth, like lake, surface either, can just float in it without any effort, like a little paradise.

Where do you think  this place at?

Weekend update: Ankur Sharma was the one and only! Awesome. It is actually not in Antalya itself but you’d see Antalya on the other side of this bay, to the left. This is Marriott resort, among bunch of other resorts spread there on the sea.

Pirates of the 21st Century

All they are missing are some cannons and a few AK47, otherwise probably have enough speed to take on that big tanker. Fortunately it is all happening in nice and safe waters of Mediterranean and not off the Somalia coast.

We had lunch at nice restaurant, seating right at the edge of the cliff, above nice lagoon with people sunbathing and swimming, observing tourist boats going in and from the little harbor. Good times!

Sunrise

Right now it is around 75-80F, in about three hours it will be above 100F. Perfect day to spend some time in nice cool water.

Of course, I’m not anywhere near there. Bummer.

at this early hour. Lifeguards show up at this tower at much later time, maybe around 9AM or so. Red umbrellas on the left are the hot commodity and get claimed right around this time, during sunrise. You’d usually see old babushkas (grandmas) show up and lay their towels on the chairs and hang around to make sure no one get into their way.

On our three day visit to this part of the Mediterranean the sea was like a lake, just as you see in this photo, calm and nice, no waves, no wind. You could just float in that salty clean water and soak under the hot Turkish sun.
