I’m sure this isn’t actually the last photo I took on Sunday, but for some reason it’s showing up last in My Pictures, so I’ll go with it.
I was trying for patterns on the water, or ducks for my HooHaa 365 photo.
And it looks like I got neither successfully in this shot!!!
Behind PB’s work there is a pond that is sort of part of a lagoon. But it doesn’t change too much with the sea levels unlike the rest of the lagoon on the other side of the road. This section usually has Mallard Ducks in it and seagulls round about. Occasionally there is a Kotuku (White Heron) here and other birds like shags & swans. We often go there to feed the ducks on the weekends, and sometimes during the week we have a quick lunch together down there when PB has his half hour lunch break.

I know, I know – WAYYYY past Friday but here we are!
I’m getting quite a few cards from Turkey as I’m involved in a RR in the Postcrossing forums, and some private swaps. When I saw this one in my mail box during the week, it caught my eye right away. I like the design of it, the colours and the individual pictures.
Cappadocia is in the centre of Turkey. It looks like a really interesting place with lots of fascinating geology to look at as well as historic buildings, cave homes – some that are now hotels!! – ancient churches & monastries, museums and plenty of restaurants with scumptious food to try. And once you’ve done with exploring this area of Turkey from the ground, a hot air balloon trip would give you a different perspective.
Red Valley, Cappadocia
This postcard arrived a few weeks back from my best Turkish Postcrossing pal, Pinuccia. This is the UNESCO World Heritage site, Goreme National Park. Pinuccia tells me that the geology here is the result of volcanic eruptions almost 3 million years ago. As these rocks are soft they are able to be carved into the houses that are still lived in today!!
Amazing area in an amazing country – definately an addition to my dream list of places to visit.
