Because it's not all about the fun here at Tell Me About It I am choosing to do a serious post today. Well not really serious. I am not even in a serious mood. I am in the mood to gaze at the lush greenery, and the mountains, and the rocks around the Black Sea. So because I want to look at them I am subjecting you to them as well. I am posting more pictures from our Black Sea trip. Some of them have been explained. Some are just pictures. Enjoy. And wish you were there with me.
The town of Amasra on the Black Sea
A closer look.
The beaches of the Black Sea are rocky. These rocks were getting wet from the surf.
Dry rocks a little further up. I brought home pocketfuls of these things!
Further up the beach the rocks give way to sand.
A hazelnut tree. The lighter green flower type thing is where the nuts are.
A view of the Black sea from the road.
A Caravan Saray in Kastamonu. This place was used like a hotel. Caravans would spend the night in places like these so that they were protected from thieves. This one wasn't in very good condition. Many we've seen have been set up with quaint shops and restaurants.
I was hating those power lines!
a close-up. again...the power lines getting in the way!
And there you have it folks. A inexpensive little trip just for you. And it didn't take all the hours of sitting in the car, having to try to use a squatty potty when you needed to go, and bowls of Iskembe Soup. You're welcome.
