Sheila and I spent 6 days in Turkey, most of our time was at the Jasmine Beach Hotel in
(Edit: I forgot to mention a few things: Hotel employees watched us picking up rocks for two days, served us drinks on the beach, and just smiled away. None of them were aware that what we were doing could have gotten us in trouble. / Also of note is the fact that when they started working over night to clean up the beach, once night they had a bulldozer push the rocks and trash and things all the way to one end before removing them, essentially flattening the beach. Another night, they brought in loads of sand and covered the beach with it. The entire beach was covered in tracks and such and it took another couple of days for it to look like a real beach)
(Edit: I ended up with the suit case that was mostly full of Sheila's things and a few articles of my dirty clothes. What luck right?)
(I would like to say, if he ever reads my blog, I just want him to know that I appreciate his kindness and his attempts to help me, a stranger, in that difficult time)
The following photos were taken at the beach in front of our hotel where we collected rocks the first couple of days.
