Another Community, Another Boat
Yes, we moved ORCA to Finike and met our future boat buyer. So, we have said our goodbyes to ORCA and we found another boat in Bodrum and sailed her to Finike. How life can change quickly, when you least expect it. We had planned to go to Cyprus and Egypt with ORCA, but now we will explore life on another boat. Our new boat is OCEAN DREAM. She is just a little shy of 35 feet and has much more living space, meaning more comfort.
We spent half the Winter getting used to OCEAN DREAM and repairing and improving her both inside and out.
While in Finike we had a great time with a very active community. There were Sunday BBQs, Wednesday Coffee Hour, Friday Concerts and various activities, such as guitar practice, yoga, card games, etc. So, we were kept busy and I was off the computer a lot.
I got involved with a guitar/music group and had fun with singing while they played. Musicians just enjoy jamming.
The marine at Finike is full of sailors from all over the globe. We have enjoyed sharing many foody experiences and much fellowship. We had a great winter and a safe one.
We love to hike and there are several long trails that can be explored. Our big hike followed a large gorge down the hill. It was dry when we came by, but is very torrential when it rains.
We will miss Finike with it’s beautiful mountains, people and all. Finike will always be remembered with fondness and we will keep in touch with many people we met there.
It is time for further travels and presently we are in Gazipasa. There will be more adventures to talk about on this summer’s slow cruise.
