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.
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.
We didn’t have a lot of time to hang around this marina or to take any boat tours. We just went around, snapped a few photos like this and then went to eat late lunch. Maybe next time when I visit Antalya or other Mediterranean towns I’ll have time to get on one of these boats and see how it looks from the water. Not sure when that would be though.
And here couple more photos showing this marina.
I can remember those fresh waters and how I jumped into them after taking a few sunrise photos, very nice and refreshing before the start of a hot day. Water in Mediterranean sea is so clean and warm, I could not believe how nice it was, and on a calm day like this, it was almost lake like experience, no waves, very still but with salt water and nice buoyancy that lets you just float in the water without much effort.
