Some Turkish Delight in Antalya

I must continue writing and sharing my pictures of Antalya.  I was only in Antalya for 7 days, but have so many pictures that I took, and I was only in the Old City for about 4 hours, but also took more than enough pictures.  But, can you ever get enough pictures?  When you are into taking pictures, it’s never enough!

You might want to take a picture of a big beautiful boat (perhaps it’s a barge) like this, surrounded by other boats with the gorgeous backdrop of the Sea in Antalya.

Then, you need to get the rocks centralized, and still get the boats in the picture.

Then, perhaps find an angle with buildings that will blend in and still give you a picture that has boats and the Sea in it.

Now, you get all that I described above in one picture.

Okay, and there I will stop.  You get the picture, you just have to take lots of pictures as you don’t know when you might go back – if ever.  The wish always of course is when you are there, that you will return.  However, life gets in the way many a time, and return visits to certain places is not as possible as perhaps a visit to other places that you just have to go to because either a piece of your heart is there, like mine is in London, or because you have family there and that is somewhere you must go back to or you will lose yourself if you erase that part completely.  I will never erase England from my memory, nor do I want to.

However, this post is about Turkey, and I feel that I have connected somewhat to Turkey – after all – I have vacationed here for a week this time, and been to Istanbul before (for about 8 hours only on a port visit during a cruise), and to Izmir (during the same cruise – but on a different day).  Who knows, it seems like Turkey is part of my destiny in some ways – I feel I will return here again.

I love these colors, bright red against the green – with the splash of blue in the background – very pretty!

The picture below reminds me a little of Seaport Village in San Diego.  Why am I seeing so much similarity or drifting off to other places during this post?  Please forgive me.  If you do view the San Diego post, I’m sure you will see some water with exactly the same color as in this one with the fountain.

Look at this, don’t you just love the Turkish teapots?

I really love this picture below and love that barge – yes I’m going to barge right in, and call it a barge!

One more thing, I was thinking about the title of this post and since I linked to other pieces that I wrote with Turkish Delight in the titles, I figured why not use these words again, and this time give you a picture or two of Turkish Delight since now I have more than enough pictures of this delicious Turkish treat.  So, these two are just for you!  By the way, they were delicious!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my pictures of Antalya.  Next time, I might bring you more pictures of Antalya or more of London…..we’ll see.  Until then, I hope you all have a terrific weekend, and for those of you in the USA – happy three day weekend!
