Gone Fishing

After what has been a cold March, cold in the UK, then cold here, the weather is finally warming up.  The storks have arrived, the first of the swallows have arrived, but as the say, one Swallow does not make spring.

So, on the first warm and sunny day, we decided to take a stroll around some of the local archaeological sites.  Ephesus on a Sunday is never going to be empty, but it is nice to stroll through, laugh at some of the tours and, well we have Muze Kart so it costs nothing.

The Artemis Temple is now as deeply flooded as it ever gets.  There are a few guys selling post cards, guide books, and dodgy coins.  Mostly it is a quiet place, the tours rarely stop and those which do move on pretty quickly.  So we were left with the geese, the turtles, frogs, a snake, storks, and a visiting heron.

Confirmed by a friend and others as a Night Heron, this one clearly did not know is was early afternoon.

  1. . . always head for any ‘pools’ at these places if they have them. Invariably interesting, full of ‘stuff’ and photogenic to boot!
