Birthday getaway

Last month for my birthday Mark surprised me with an overnight trip to one of the islands on the Bosphorus.  It was a great trip – nice hotel, great weather, beautiful scenery!

The view from our hotel.

Personal vehicles are prohibited on the island.  People get around on bikes or horse-drawn carriages.  This was our ride to tour the island.

I guess these little guys have their own way of getting around.

See how beautiful the scenery was (if you can overlook the barbed wire)!

It’s a fish market.  They must be waiting for lunch.

We had raspberry cheesecake and chocolate waffle for lunch.  It was my birthday.

Let’s play again!  Where’s Waldo?
