Blue-green

Beach, Colours

Tuesday 6th August 2019

By the time we reached the Island

lagoons – of blue green came into view

under these waters – fish and turtles

enjoying a paddle in the waters

glassy waters lapping up against the shore

resting in crevices of resident rocks

each one giving a home to

eager young hermit crabs…moving there

next to the sea, but away from the tide

The Lagoon Beach

THE DUCKS GO FOR A PADDLE

There were two beaches within the apartments reach at Oludeniz,  My favourite one was the one known as the Lagoon.  This was a stretch of Beach around a nearby cove which was owned by the various hoteliers.  The Sand was wonderfully soft and the water in the Lagoon so clear you could make out the shoals of fish running about in it.  A Key thing though – it was vast.  In places the hotels were using parts of it for watercraft.  What surprised me though was how the Local wildlife mingled quite happily with the sun worshippers.

Ducks , Swans and Bluebirds pottered their way around the sunloungers whilst the odd lizard played peek-a-boo from the tops of nearby trees…with me and my half-way aquaphobia – they put me at ease. And I even raised a smile when the big fishes circled round my cumbersome feet.  They gave me an Impetus to get back in the water…and enjoy it.
