End of Summer

Early morning at beach
I know it's the 4th of September and I know lots of people went on their Autum modes the moment clocks hit 12 a.m. on the 1st. But unfortunately I'm not like that. Maybe it's because I'm a procrastinator but probably because it's still above 30C around here, I don't feel like summer is over. (Summerhouse plans for the next week are also preventing me from that) The problem is I don't know where summer went. And while I want to blame the horrible days we went through as a family, it'd be an overstatement. Because those days were mostly over during summer and I didn't want to do anything. This doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the summer. But I also realized that I need to remember those moments and that's where a blog comes handy. What did I do this summer?
  • Was mostly in the summer house with a spectecular mountain view and 10 minutes walk to the beach. 
  • Some friends came to visit so we stayed till late at nights and slept on the beach because of the heat. We also ate tons of mussels and drank beer a lot.
  • I got to go to Tenedos with other friends. Probably had the most delightful 3 days. Walked a lot, drank a lot of wine and watched the sunset. 
  • Then some extended family members came to visit. Which was actually more fun than you might think. So we had huge dinners which led to lazy conversations. 
  • I came back to the city a couple of times. It was not that bad. Watched Star Wars in open air, had picnics in the park. I met with an old friend and a new friend in Istanbul for 2 days. Gotta miss Istanbul. (Besides I had quite a lot of fun)
  • I finally wrote some stuff. Not that much but it was still more than rest of the year.
  • I didn't read much unfortunately. But the book I enjoyed most was Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula Le Guin (Don't ask me why it took me so much to finally read this book).
  • And I finally realized how much I missed 'listening' to music. Actively, like the old times. 
  • Oh and I ate a lot. 

Trees (they are us?)
Before heading home
But when sun went down
Let's walk
That's how doors should be
Island view
Comfy cat
An ordinary evening
View from my balcony
Best bookshop in island
Eat all the food
Oh me!


  1. Fantastic photographs, dear! Too bad you do not post too often :(

    1. Thank you so much! I always wish I can post more but I end up being lazy. Though lately I feel more inclined to set blog goals so I HOPE there'll be more activity and posts will be less sporadic.

      Also thanks for dropping by because now I discovered your blog which is fantastic.
