Each Friday, readers visiting this blog have come to expect a photo of a scene from the Fethiye region. Well, things have gone a little bit skew-whiff throughout April. One Friday, we completely forgot it was Friday but at least we posted a photo tour of Xanthos - a few photos for the price of one. This week, we did remember it was Friday and we did intend to post a photo but circumstances - running around preparing for our trip to Italy - meant it wasn't possible to get it done.
So, this week's Friday photo is a Saturday snap! On Wednesday, just about the whole of Turkey was sitting underneath a storm, and high winds and rain caused disruption to flights - and we had the usual scenario of the electricity flickering on and off. But storms and heavy skies always make for a good sunset...
A stormy sunset over ÇalışWe've had photos of the Çalış Beach sunset in the past but no two are the same. This was the scene on Thursday and, as you can see, the storm clouds were once again rolling in. (Thankfully, they didn't amount to much.)
We'd gone to Çalış on Thursday evening to meet someone. When you run a blog, you come into contact with other blogs and bloggers. We've been following a blog called Life In The Expat Lane for quite a while now and the lady who writes it (Miss Footloose) is currently living in Moldova. She and her husband had wanted to visit Turkey for a while and on reading Turkey's For Life, decided to head to this region. There's pressure!
Well after nearly missing them because I got the time wrong (you should be getting a good picture of our haphazard lifestyle by now), we managed to catch them and enjoy a couple of drinks together while watching the sun go down. Miss Footloose and her husband have now left Fethiye but we're happy (and relieved) to report that they enjoyed their time here and she's already written a post about their break to Fethiye.
