At about 10:30 in the morning, we pulled into Bodrum. Now the challenge was to find a place to call our own for the next 30 days. If you have had the opportunity to follow our web pages, you will remember about 3 weeks ago, we were here and did some preliminary exploring for a place to spend a month or so this winter. Well, we went back to the place we thought we might like the best, but we couldn’t find anyone there. So, on we went, practically knocking on each and every door. As it was, we did find a place to stay, but it cost us quite a bit more than we first had found. What do you do?…well, we took it. It is larger, has a full sized refrigerator, clothes washer, oven, and is right on one of the marina’s in the middle of this little village and on the upper floor with a great view.
Yesterday (Friday), was kind of a catch-up day. We did laundry, shopped for groceries, unpacked the van, went for a long walk, and headed off to bed by 8:30pm. Today was some of the same, but in addition we went to Bodrum (about 12km away), and found someone who could re-upholster the van for us reasonably. Believe it or not, they had it all done in 4 hours and it looks great. Then back “home”, and barbeque hamburgers and get rid of the mosquitoes in the bedroom. They had a couple of brush fires across the water from us tonight that got quite large, but now it looks like they have been put out. Business for the local merchants is very slow now, but with Ramazon coming to a close on the 15th, they are expecting more people to come into town for the 3 days of celebration. I have a few more items that I would like to have done on “Bumble Bee” before we leave here on the 12th of December, but we will have to see if I get it accomplished. Tomorrow…???
