Kalkan.

These past two weeks I have been in Kalkan, Turkey. The weather was gorgeous and so were the views. We mostly stayed in the villa in the day relaxing and reading.  


We did a boat trip one day, left the harbor nice and early before any other boats.









We did a mud bath on this beach. We were skeptical at first but our skin was defiantly left softer.











Lunch was provided on the boat, all that food for the three of us, made fresh on the boat.



We made a few more stops for swimming as the other boats started to catch us up.






Then it was announced by the captain that it was fruit time! Eight types of fruit and homemade cakes. Delicious.  


We returned back to the harbor after our day of swimming and sunbathing.



Most evenings we ate in the old town at the roof top restaurants.






Appetizer.


Toaster for the bread at the table.

Swordfish.


We would then stop on the way home for a baklava or three. I am going to have a try at making these at home so look out for that!





On Thursdays there is a large market selling fresh fruit and vegetables, spices, leather goods, clothes and lots more. We bought some fruit and veg, some nuts for snacking and apple tea.













This was the view from our villa and pool.









A couple of times we saw tortoises just going about there business which is a bit odd seeing them at the side of the road but, very cute.  







In the old town you can also pick up Turkish cloth I have a pale mint one over the sofa in my room at home.



I loved this bowls but just not sure I would use them at home.










One evening we went to the Kalkan Regency for dinner it was beautiful.



Bread was freshly made in the oven.





We looked over the old town and harbor. Beautiful.





One morning we went down to a cove we had spotted for an early morning swim, found these fellas on the way.















I read a lot over the two weeks and my case was much lighter coming home!
