BY THE SEA SHORE

Soft sand
Whispering winds
Sky & Sea
Hand-in-hand.
Salty waft
Mist hangs
Shells galore
Mysteries untold
Seaside allure
Leaves me
Wanting for more…

A view from Bodrum Marina.
Have you noticed the "mild pink" clouds ?

Bodrum (from Petronium; formerly Halicarnassus (Turkish: Halikarnas, Ancient Greek: Αλικαρνασσός)) is a Turkish port town in Muğla Province, in the southwestern Aegean Region of the country. It is located on the southern coast of Bodrum Peninsula, at a point that checks the entry into the Gulf of Gökova, and it faces the Greek island of Kos. Today, it is an international center of tourism and yachting. The city was called Halicarnassus of Caria in ancient times. The Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, was here.

Bodrum Castle, built by the Crusaders in the 15th century, overlooks the harbor and the International Marina. The castle grounds includes a Museum of Underwater Archeology and hosts several cultural festivals throughout the year.

The region includes the municipalities of Bodrum, Turgutreis, Ortakent, Türkbükü, Yalıkavak and Gümüşlük, and numerous recent tourist-oriented developments were built or are being built across the district area. The peninsula extends across an exceptionally dry belt contrasting even with its immediately neighboring regions, and poor rainfall results in a constant shortage of potable water, an issue that became more critical lately, with newcoming settlers and the visitors.

Bodrum Marina'dan bir görüntü.
Tekneler ve direkleri gökyüzü ve deniz arasında
bir köprü gibiydi adeta...
Belli belirsiz pembe "uçak izleri"ni farkettiniz mi ?
Selamlar,
