Our second last Trash Tuesday of 2018

Sadly, by this time next week, we will be moored in a marina and preparing Lady Roslyn for winter.

We have loved our journey along the Turkish coastline and taking time to explore the wonderful Gulf of Gokova.

After meandering along the southern shores of the Gulf for over a week, we crossed to the north side and entered the large bay of Akbuk Limani. The previous week was all about anchoring in small coves enclosed by rolling hills, densely covered in pine forests which grow right to the water's edge. Suddenly it felt as though we were in the Alps and anchored in a Swiss lake.

Today's Trash Tuesday post gives the location of a cleared cove as well as details of a very, very beautiful anchorage which may not immediately be apparent when entering Akbuk Limani or looking in the Turkish Waters Pilot Book.

The water here is crystal clear and the bottom in the cove is white sand. We dropped anchor in 17m and reversed in, watching as the depth came up steadily (our keel was only 1.4m clear of the sand once anchored). There are good rocks to tie off to and once in, we felt very secure in absolutely spectacular surroundings.

By next year, I am not sure if this cove will still be clear of trash, but at least it is now, and if anyone is visiting this area in future, and the wind direction suitable, give this anchorage a try.

About us

We are Nic and Catherine Hodgson from Cape Town, South Africa. Our plan is to commute between Cape Town and LADY ROSLYN, spending a few seasons cruising and exploring the Mediterranean Sea, an Atlantic crossing, time in the Caribbean and with luck, a season or two in the Pacific.

Along the way, we hope that family and friends will join us.

For now though, we are taking it slowly and enjoying life one trip at a time.

but for life not to escape us"
