Yonca's Retreat.

During this round of  ABCW  I have written quite a lot about our many trips around Turkey, we have stayed in 4 and 5*Hotels,  A Mountain Hut, (loosely described as a rustic pension) complete with holes in the roof, we discovered this during  a scary storm orchestrated by the loudest thunder and fork lightning, which was streaking across the turquoise blue lake beneath us, and stripping the bark off the surrounding fir trees.

ABCW would not be here so to quote Roger &…

Vistas and visions of Liverpool

View  of the Pier Head and the  visually stunning waterfront. I thought I'd let the camera do the talking showing Liverpool at it's very best.        It's been a busy few weeks around our beloved city. The Three Queens sailing majestically up The River Mersey for Cunard's 175 Anniversary  Celebrations.  See the vision of The Red Arrows Aerobatics Display team.
