|Our winter view from Milly's cockpit/sunroom. One of the best parts about being here is our phenomenal natural setting. Makes me smile!|
Finike is the warmest climate we can expect in the Med, apart from Cyprus and Israel where we hope to spend the latter months of the season. The sea is warmer in the eastern Med so although at the same latitude as Monastir, Tunisia, last years wintering spot, it is a bit warmer. And, unfortunately much wetter - so far anyway. The rain has brought snow to the nearby mountains which makes a beautiful backdrop on clear days.

Finike is a small port town surrounded by citrus orchards. Further along the coast are innumerable greenhouses full of tomato plants. Very friendly, welcoming locals with a lively cruising community. We're busy with hammam and symphony outings, barbecues, coffee mornings, music nights, Turkish lessons, bike rides and we've only been here a few days.
It's bound to be a fun winter exploring a stunning country and culture with friends. We're looking forward to it.
