♒ my Turkish birthday ♒

Dear Blogettes
I am having a lovely time in Turkey, it was my birthday on Monday and I celebrated by sharing a boat trip with some friends around the blue bays of the coast here. The sea was the perfect blue, the boat a little rickety, the lunch was all produced in a kitchen the size of a cupboard and was delicious.

Turkey!

The sun shone all day as it should on birthdays... beginning with the breakfast for Kings, tomatoes, feta cheese, olives and bread, eggs and cherry jam...

breakfast for two

Leaping from the boat into turquoise seas and bringing forth birthday sea urchins for my delight..

Another treasure to add to my nature table...

And the day ended as gloriously as it began, with tequila sunrises at sunset... all birthdays should be as beautiful as this for everyone.

i LOVE looking at your Turkey pics. Looks great - you know I have never been and I think i should! Breakfast looks yummy.

ah! that all looks totally stunning! love the sea, so turquoise and clear. although i have to say, the only thing i didn't like about turkey was the breakfasts. i'm not a tomato fan at the best of times, so i was not happy to see one that early in the morning! x
