I was nonchalantly checking out my stats when I fell upon the All Seasons website What did I see there: not one, not two, but three of my very own posts! Feeling good …..!!!!
This is just a quiet little rave re that but while I am at it, I would like to say that I am mad at blogger: I am experiencing a problem with photos ie enlarging them and writing captions. I have checked everything out to make sure it isn’t just me – and it doesn’t seem to be – and made a complaint to Google. To date I have heard nothing back. I think that is pretty crummy. I’m not sure I’m that keen on Google these days ….
I will end on a more peaceful note with this photo of a fabulous Turkish meze spread: this was taken in Assos at Yıldız Sarayı on Kadırga beach during the recent bayram or sacrificial holiday. Suffice it to say it was every bit as good as it looks: the sun shone and the sea was blue while the food was just fantastic …
The photo below is where I was today: on the island of Büyükada or Prinkipo, one of the Princes Islands in the Sea of Marmara, with a group of friends. It was a very windy day and at times we were a bit cold. But we flogged all the way up to Aya Yorgi, the Greek Orthodox monastery of St George, and had an unexpectedly splendid lunch. The view we had at our feet was of the island of Sedef with the city of Istanbul behind.
