James & Tom arrive
After a rather tortuous journey, the boys were eventually found sitting on the steps of the memorial to the sponge-divers on the town quay in Marmaris. Already two hours later than expected because their flight was delayed, they had asked to be dropped off at Yacht Marine, which is the name of our marina, and the driver helpfully dropped them off beside a sign saying 'yacht marine' in the middle of town! It was, in fact, where the charter yachts and gulets pick up their customers. There then followed a flurry of text messages (phone calls didn't seem to connect which made things even more frustrating) as we tried to ascertain where, exactly, in Marmaris they were. We made our way to town by Dolmus bus, but it wasn't until James sent a text saying that they were near a 'statue of some woman, near some motorbikes', that we finally knew where to find them.
It was great to see them, and they were soon settled onto the boat. Dinner in the marina restaurant was followed by a very early night as they were totally exhausted!
