The Blue Aegean Sea…

I’ve never seen a bluer sea, and I’ve seen many, because if there is one thing that I love is the water…I was born near the water and I’ve always lived in a coastal city or town…but the Aegean Sea is incredibly beautiful.

Here are some shots I took while sailing in Turkish waters…

And areas along the coast heading south from Bodrum, and Bodrum is more or less in the middle of the Turkish Aegean coast, about a one hour flight from Istanbul.

It’s a very relaxing time, the time you spend on the water, and since most of the coastline is composed of coves and small bays, you can anchor and jump in any time of the day or the night that you like…

When you hire a boat, it comes with a captain, a chef and a first mate. You then purchase everything and anything you wish to eat along the voyage as well as everything and anything you would like to drink. We had a great chef and ate gourmet quality food throughout the seven days of sailing the Turkish Aegean.

It is a very relaxing and refreshing time, a most enjoyable experience. You eat, you drink, you take in the sunshine and the gorgeous waters of that blue, blue Aegean Sea…

I leave you with a little video clip that I made of my trips and journeys in Turkey, a country I know very well, although I should say that I know the western, Aegean coast, because Turkey is a huge country and I know very little of all points east, north or further south…

Turkey, at least some of it…

    We had a chance to go on a boat trip while visiting Turkey and it was so much fun! Making stops along the way just so we can go for a swim was one of the best parts of the trip! Thanks for sharing and have a good day 😀 Aiva

      Hello Janet, I hope that this reply message goes through as I have tried to reply and “it” has not accepted it for whatever reason…in any event, thank you so much! Turkey is a rather fascinating country as it is akin to an open air antiquities and archaeological museum! I have visited many ancient sites, both Greek, Roman and Ottoman and I find that the areas that I visit, which is mostly the western coast, the Aegean region, is peaceful and quiet and very much like the rest of Mediterranean Europe. All the best to you, my greetings and wishes for a lovely weekend,
