The Christmas Poinsettia – Ataturk Çiçeği

It’s that time of year, Christmas Eve, Eve, in fact! Where festive things are all around, twinkling lights, pretty trees, tinsel, enough food to feed the 5000, endless tubs of chocolates, and perhaps a poinsettia or two! It’s the latter that I want to talk about – up until last year I had no idea […]

Going, going, gone.. A Calis Beach sunset.

Winter Sunsets in Calis..

A Calis Beach Sunset…

I am loving my new house being so close to the beach – having the freedom to walk the 2 minutes to the beach at any time is great.  Yesterday evening after Berkay had gone to work I decided to go on a stroll to the beach to watch the sunset. It was a fairly cloudy evening and […]
