HARVEST MOON OVER TURKEY

September 25th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Now that it is officially fall in Turkey, the sunsets are becoming even more spectacular.   Clouds that form during the day burst with color as the sun sets.

We enjoyed the arrival of the Harvest moon while anchored off a small island called Baba Adasi about 25 NM east of Marmaris.

The daytime sky is also quite different this time of year.  The sky is now filled with fluffy cumulus clouds that tower over the mountains.

But the only rain we have seen is far off shore.

 

Rain at sea but not on shore

The temperature is still in the mid-80’s during the day and 60’s at night, but there are lovely breezes.  Make that very light breezes, not the kind for sailing—much to Kent’s dismay.

    Hi guys. We have been keeping up to date with your adventures since we returned to the UK at the beginning of July. Kerenne is currently out of the water in Crete where she will stay for the winter. Unfortunately due to John’s mum being ill, we have had to cancel our return for the Autumn. Our plans had been to sail to Marmaris, leaving Kerenne at Marmaris Yacht Marine. We hope to get back on board in April next year and head NE from Crete towards Turkey so we may meet up with you again. Have a good winter and trip back to the States. We will keep in touch here and will keep our blog as up to date as possible next year.
    Best Regards: John and Bernie
