I am having great difficulty not to refer to this place as Donald Duck. Yes, I have had a beer.

We sailed most of the way here and I even reefed for an hour or so. On first site it doesn't look promising ........

.....but the people are lovely. Coming in there was no vacant berth but a group of Turkish fishermen waved me alongside a motor boat. They took my lines and did everything necessary. They all welcomed me by saying 'welcome' so I was encouraged to talk to them in English to find this was the only word they knew.

I have just been watching a family off for an evening trip in a little fishing boat.

The baby was waving and Grandma was on the helm.

More on Donald Duck tomorrow when I have had a look around.
