Turunç Diary - December 2014

Happy New Year.  Hope you all had a good Christmas.

November may have been glorious but December certainly blew in with a bang and it looks like going out that way as well!  The first storm bought torrential rain, gale force winds, thunder, lightning and floods.  We've had a few lovely sunny days in between including Christmas Day but I don't think there will be many revelers out and about tonight, New Years Eve.

 

Torrential rain in early December floods the main street
All that water brings out the blossoms ...
... and the oranges for which Turunç is famous
Still enough sand on the beach to write a message
A beautifully sunny Christmas Day in Turunç
But a few more clouds on Boxing Day!
Hassan ('The Spice Man') and Nuray celebrate a special wedding anniversary
Battle of the Christmas beards!
New jetty being installed for the new hotel
New jetty being installed for the new hotel
New jetty being installed for the new hotel
Building work continues on the new hotel ...
... on the new Physkos villas at the back of the village ...
... and on the new apartments opposite the Village Bar

 

A Turkish TV company - Beyaz TV - came to Marmaris and Turunç for a programme called Bizim Soframiz which I believe loosely translates as "our dinner table".

Musti Restaurant held a Christmas dinner which was well attended and Hassan ("Turkish Delight") and Nuray celebrated a special wedding anniversary in Bob's Bar.

Work continues on the new hotel with the new jetty being installed.  The new Physkos villas continue apace and work has also resumed on the new apartments opposite the Village Bar.
