Boat Trip To Gumusluk

entry picture

We meet on the quayside, where we begin our day trip

All aboard the day boat Ispita, Captain Izzet is our Skip


We set off in bright sunshine, under cloudless blue sky

On calm and tranquil seas, waving to others passing by


Sail in to rocky coves, take a leisurely swim or a dip

Negotiate the wooden deck, carefully, avoiding a slip


Gumusluk Bay is our destination, the prettiest of sights

Narrow shingle beach, sea front pensions, painted white


Many restaurants with jetties over and out into the sea

Lights twinkle at night, jewelled gourds hang from trees


Decorated white branches rise up from clear water below

Metallic ribbons ripple, wafting as the gentle breeze blows


4BC once stood Myndos City the ancient site of this town

Until an earthquake brought the city walls tumbling down


Archaeological artefacts still being discovered to this day

Why Gumusluk is now protected and shall remain this way


We finish our delicious lunch, sheltering in the shallow bay

Watching the world go by, on this, the most perfect of days


Suitably fed, watered and relaxed, we set off once more

We recline on our towels as we sail away from the shore


Sailing the calmest, bluest sea, a millpond reflecting the sky

On the lookout for dolphins, but unfortunately none swim by


Colours of the ocean, stunning, appear like a rainbow of blues

Navy, azure, turquoise, sapphire, deep and clear, sparkling hues


Back at the quayside, the day has been such a pleasure

A day to remember, filled with memories forever to treasure
