Today, Wednesday and all is well in putting the boat to bed. Robert, Bruce and Ross have left us to continue their journey through Turkey with Roberts wife and her sister. We had a couple of farewell dinners with them and we all agreed that the last few weeks have been a ball. Five guys on a boat is a big ask, especially as the 3 farmers had not meet us before and Martin and I both wondered how things would go. But no sweat. We had a ball and laughed, drank and ate our way through the wonderful Greek islands. My biggest problem was keeping up with them. I am sure we will keep in touch. Marmaris is a fairly large place and full of English tourists. We haven't had a big look around as the marina is quite a distance from the town. We are quite keen to get away from here as it is not very attractive were we are sitting. We have both suffered bee stings, but the pool is nice. We will endeavour to leave here on the Thursday afternoon and and spend 2 nights in Rhodes be fore we take off from there to Athens

In 2012 I retired after 43 years in retail and am now living the dream of following the sun. For some years I have travelled to Norway to visit our son and his family and now I am retired and have more time at my disposal I can include other adventures.
