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
