You missed something. Remember the little show Dirk showed you in your place. It's now an even better one, longer and updated with some Turkey's adventures !

Winter came.........

Winter came yesterday . The babbling brook failed to babble and roared instead, probably due to being struck by lightning upstream. Well, wouldn't you



Cheers,

..................these guys can put it back together again lower down the cliff



I've just found my ideal job. Sit me in one of these and I'll happily play away all day






Ah, splendid isolation



The marina will have berths for 500 yachts along with workshops, marine suppliers and restaurants. Due to be finished by May 2010, pushed back from November 2009. Feelings along the locals are mixed with fears of increased pollution and tourist led inflation in the shops countered with increased employment. Hopefully, by May, I'll post a pic or two of the final product after I've moored my ocean going canoe of course

Cheers,

Dickyb

Fethiye in Winter

Found myself in Fethiye today which, incidentally, already has a marina. Walking by the waterside allowed me to witness the full ferocity of the seasons weather ..........



.......when I nearly stumbled into this



which unfortunately had picked up some road kill on its boulevard cruise



Still, managed to get home in time to catch the moon rising



Happy New Year to all out there in AdvLand.

Cheers,

Dickyb

Dicky,

Great ride report and pics. I must make find the time to tour Turkey.

What do you hear about Georgia and Syria? I'd like to try to ride up there from the Kingdom and check out the sights this Spring.

Hi Dave,
It's been a while since I've been on here.
After searching for some intersting Turkish posts I came across you're new photos of Fethiye.........looking rather good this time of year I must say.
How has the XT660 been so far ? I've been looking at the prices of them on the Sahibinden website.........how much !!
I suppose you can't have it all out there.

All the best Dave for 2010 from snowy Richmond.

Ian.
