November's Scavenger Hunt

Hello dear friends.  It's been awhile since I took part in Greenthumb's Scavenger Hunt.  I hope you like this month's selection.  It has a "Turkish" theme since I just returned from Turkey. 

 A stranger we met along the roadway on our drive up the mountain.  Goats are very popular in Turkey and they have some of the most wonderful goat cheeses I have ever tasted.

Looking down onto Alanya harbour from the castle hill.

Pop Culture is worldwide.  This is the best I could come up with.

The weather was amazing and the best part was enjoying the sunsets each night.

Big bags of tea were spied at the grocery store.  They were marked 5,000 grams - over 11 pounds of tea in each bag!

Sign down the road from our home which actually an outdoor restaurant. It's a great place to experience homemade, authentic, Turkish cuisine.

Bottle(s) of water are popular since many people don't like the taste of the tap water.  It tasted fine for me but I obliged and bought bottled water.

Out and about each day was fun discovering different places.  This is the courtyard of a restaurant downtown Alanya.

My husband wearing his favorite hat and enjoying the view.

This may look like a hole in the wall but it's actually a built in bar-b-que on a balcony.

One more beautiful sunset that I just had to share with you.

Whatever you want....maybe to live in this lovely Turkish villa!

I hope you enjoyed these photos.  I'd love to hear from you when you have a chance.  Have a wonderful week!

take care,

  9. Hi Pat I ahv never been to Turkey so this was lovely seeing your photographs to go with the word prompts this month. Loved bith sunsets and that looks a gorgeous view where your husband is sitting relaxing from as well as the view from castle hill looking down on the harbour. Great to see all the goats wandering around. Sounds like a great holiday. Apparently my link was not working until yeterday so hope you will pop in and see my take on the words and read my continuing story about The Formidible Four. Have a wonderful Christmas, I am just off to spend it in Malawi with my family.

  10. Looks like you had a wonderful view from your balcony and do like the idea of a built in balcony bbq! Really enjoyed seeing your holiday photos, I've very fond memories of trips to Turkey, must go back sometime! Stunning sunsets.

  11. Hi Pat! I'm slowly making the rounds. I'm so behind! I'm glad I'm sticking with it though, because I would not have wanted to miss your Turkey collection for November's scavenger hunt! The sunsets were wonderful, and I enjoyed seeing the landscapes and vistas. Lucky you ~ It looks like you had a great trip! Happy December!

  12. It was lovely seeing Turkey through your scavenger hunt. Gorgeous views and sunsets. I wouldn't mind staying in the last villa too! x
