Flag of Turkey  , Turkish Aegean Coast,
Wednesday, August 18, 2010

I was delighted to see Johno step off the ferry in Kos - looking very pale and travel weary.   We headed out across the Gorcoka Bay back to a little bay marked Yali on the map - no buildings and lots of clear water.   After a couple of days he looked much better so we headed further up the bay before heading back to collect Cec and James and Amie a few days later.   Their plane was really late getting into Kos so we stayed in the old marina and the young went on the town.  I was sleeping on deck and Johno arrived home round 6am - party town. We had a lovely sail down to Kalboshi on the Datca peninsula which they adored so we stayed another night there - boys climbed huge hills, jumped off ridiculously high rocks into the sea  and we ate at a lovely restaurant owned by a character called Ogun.  Then on to Dirserk a bay towards the end of the Datca peninsula where we ran into the boat Hokitika again.  Next on to Simi and all its madness and we had a lovely evening in neighbouring Pethi.   They caught a ferry back to Kos and home.  It was marvellous fun and we were both really sad to see them go.   Johno and I sailed on to Keki Buku, back to Datca and yesterday sailed from Datca to Bodrum.  Boat was doing over 7 knots from Kos to Bodrum - they say it was round 30 knots.  Housekeeping - I have come to Greece and left Turkey for the day - I need to renew my Turkish entry ticket so fingers crossed that they let me back into the country!!
