Under the Sea

I had my first dive of the year this weekend. Perfect weather of 28 degrees (83 F) and water temperature of 18 C (65 F).

I got a little action camera this Winter and could finally make use of it underwater (I had used it to take some wave pictures above water).

I am happy with what this tiny camera can do, but unfortunately could not take Macro pictures with it, will have to save up for a better camera.

Diving is both like flying and being a mermaid at the same time, in case you ever thought of doing it, just do it :).

It were two great and chill dives, and it was great to be back in the water.

I did my dives with a girl I met last year on the boat, was nice catching up with her and we had fun both in the water and out of it :) Hope you enjoyed my dive too!

Spring Has Sprung

I love this time of the year, weather is warming up but during the night it is still blanket weather, perfect! As soon as the weather starts warming up, Nature awakes around us.

We have a huge amount of wildflowers in our mountains and they also pop up in our garden. All these pictures are either from our garden or from my dog walks right near our home.

Turtles also woke up from their winter sleep.

This one came right at our door, I kind of think that some come back every year as I give them lettuce and cucumbers they might remember our address as a good one :).

There used to live an ex-president close to our house, and he had guards and this little watch tower is a leftover of that time.

I love the colors and geometry of nature!

No wonder we have lots of bees and great honey around here, look at all those flowers :)

Photo Expedition - Datça & Knidos

This Sunday I went to another photo expedition with my photography class. This time it was pretty close by to Datça first and then Knidos. Both are on the same Peninsula and have amazing bays but also history.

Datça is a village but it is popular for city people and a lot of people from Istanbul come here for vacations or even move here after retirement. So even though it is a village it doesn't really have the usual things 'true villages' have. Not much farming and such going on.

The old stone houses are very typical in this place, which makes it charming and photographic.

Lots of beautiful doors.

And abandoned school and Mosque, both emptied due to earthquake damage.

You could especially see lots of cracks at the mosque, the only person inside was a ginger cat but he didn't want to pose.

I adore these cute little narrow 'streets', reminds me of old stories and fairy tales.

We had terrific weather and great fun.

Love this paddle gate door :D

Evil eyes everywhere, I guess a neighbor was stealing the lemons :)

Silk thread from a cute little silk shop.

We then went to Knidos, horrible winding road, I think going with a boat would be more fun. The ruins in Knidos were kind of ruined, all ordered in rows, not nice at all, so that was disappointing. But pretty views, the lighthouse and the wildflowers were nice.

I love wild flowers, in the mountains as soon as you pay attention there are dozens of types and all so pretty.

 The details of the ruins were pretty too, but not really worth the horrible road :D

I prefer the sea, which was amazingly turquoise on Sunday, breathtaking colors.

I hope you enjoyed my day with me :)
