It was a quiet day for us, it was warm at 86 and there were lots of people swimming in the little swim area just across the breakwater from our stern. The people at the bar just lay out until they get hot, go for a dip and then back to the bar. At night the bar removes all of the beach chairs and brings back the tables and sets it up for dining. Last night was a reception and they had a piano bar and singer. She was pretty good and we enjoyed the piano solos too.

We took a walk to get some Turkish Money so we could pay Rick back for our visa fees (45 euro each!) and get a little exercise. Cesme appears to be a very prosperous area and there are a lot of new and very nice homes. Many homeowners put their car in a carport to keep the sun off. Often they put an open structure over it, cover that with a fabric and let the plants grow over it. Grapes were common, so were flowering vines.

We walked back to the marina via the hotel. I got a chance to get a panorama overlooking the marina and if you look closely you can see odelia among the boats on the far right hand side. Walking through the little shopping area was interesting, typical little plaza, swimsuit shops, shops to get snacks as well as liquor and mix, a couple nice art galleries, a rental car place, and a body piercing and tattoo parlor.

Tomorrow we will check in at the marina to make sure we have a reservation for the shuttle and then take a taxi to the real part of Cesme, we are in the resort area not the real town. There is a nice castle and some things to see. Just after we got into bed we heard the booms of fireworks so we came up and caught the last few minutes of the fireworks.

Boom, boom, boom.

Boom, boom, boom.
