Foça- Mid Week Holiday
We are off to Foça once again and this time we are seasoned travelers. It is the Children's Bayram and school is on holiday for two days. We grab two other teacher/ friends and are off to find the beaches of Foça.~ Success!
By the time we got back to the village it was time for a beer on the balcony and watch the sunset over the Aegean.
The next day we slept late and enjoyed a long slow breakfast, Turkish style and watched the village come to life. Boats being readied for sail, fishermen bringing in the morning catch or repairing their nets. This little guy was proud to show us his haul- that's a shark folks!
The rest of the day we strolled the streets and allies of old Foça. Taking in the calming pace and relaxation and loving the plethora of kittens.
Unfortunately we had to return to Izmir that evening and after lunch found a bar to have a fair well beer and a quick game of Farkle............ Şerefe!
