Dalyan Bay - 36° 36' 10" N 29° 1' 50"

Once again, we have fallen into the lazy rhythm of life on board. However, on Seahorse A, we have taken it to a whole new level. With only four passengers, the crew of six is very attentive to our sleep, eat, swim, dive, repeat schedule. After three dives, Sean and I are getting back into the swing of it, we are maintaining our buoyancy and have stopped kicking each other in the head as we bob around under the surface. It is certainly not the Barrier Reef but there is plenty of marine life to see along with the odd discarded detritus of human life. The water is warm and clear and the sheer rock walls plummeting into the blue depths are spectacular.

We are very impressed with this boat and its captain.  For the first time in two weeks of being aboard vessels, we had a safety briefing before we left the dock; there are clearly posted safety procedures; we heard the warning sound (should something happen) and we've seen the lifejackets.  So much for "safety third."  The boat is marvellous, with spacious cabins, big showers, wifi (!!!), and more deckspace than open ground on our Broadview Road lot.  The food is enough to make the wetsuit zippers more and more challenging after each meal (luckily, we can trade up a size or two as needed).  It is all good, healthy meals made with local-grown, tasty food except for ... the fish.  There isn't much commercial fishing left here (many little fish to please the tourists like us, though), due to 12,000 + years of habitation around the Aegean Sea.  Apparently, much of the fish consumed here comes from around Norway.

Several more days of diving to go.  We will battle on bravely.
