On monday I made one of our favourite dishes a chicken casserole. The original name is “tante Torhilds kyllingform” (in Norwegian) This is so tasty and amazing good and when we make it we have dinner for three days.
1 kg chicken filet
0,5 small spoon of sambal oelek
1 big spoon with mango chutney
salt and pepper
cheese (I sometimes use to mix normal cheese with parmesan)
Fry the vegetables and put them in a pan together with mango chutney, sambal oelek and the cream. Taste if you need more or less about something. Let it boil for a while until you can`t feel the cream taste anymore.
Fry the chicken (in bites) and put everything into a baking dish. Put cheese on the top and put it all in the oven until the cheese has melted. We serve it together with rice.
It was some nice and warm days in the beginning of the week and I could relaxe on the deck
while Astor were working… 🙂
On Tuesday we went to Sevgiyolu for dinner together with Geoff and Sharon.
From nice and warm days to storm, rain and colder days
From Thursday it was expected more wind from south so we sailed to our favourite bay already Wednesday because we realized that more boats had discovered this place. Also Geoff and Sharon, Bobby and Gül, and Mike came over, and three of us tied together with anchor and many lines ashore. We also met Daniel and Charlotte from New Zealand, who is sailing together with their 1 year old daughter Jessica.
You can follow Daniel and Charlotte on youtube!
Wednesday we invited all of them (Daniel and Charlotte came first on Thursday) for dinner, carrot soup. The recipe for the carrot soup have I wrote about earlier:
Thursday was the Australian national day and Geoff and Sharon invited us to celebrate together with them. They made pies and mashed potatoes, very good!

And a delicious pavlova for dessert
On Friday the wind increased and we had to start the engine to hold our boats where they were.
You can see the bad weather is coming in.
Here you can see how the weather was:
At 2 pm the wind dropped to almost 0 and we could invite everyone for waffles.
Totally different weather
You shouldn`t believe there was a storm only a couple of hours ago
The anchorage next to us.
And “our” anchorage.
Geoff and Sharon at Mataraki, Astor and me at Felizia, and Bobby and Gül at MBR.
And luckily we didn`t stay in town, because the weather had been really bad over there. And after a while all the dirt came over to our bay.
Look at all this dirt coming with the tide!
You didn`t wan`t to swimming in this…
The three of us decided to stay an extra night and saturday it all cleared up.
Astor did some cleaning, and took 25 logs to the beach from the ocean. It is nothing you want to hit when you are coming with a boat.
He used the dinghy to work it out
The water was already a lot cleaner so I took a short swim while Astor was cleaning the ocean.
Astor also clean the beach
You can see at our dinghydock how much weather it was…
Hiking in the hill between Marmaris and Icmeler
On Sunday we decided to have a hike up to the mountain between Marmaris and Icmeler. We didn`t had any exact plan, there are so many roads to try. Astor and me, together with Sharon, took the bus to the last bustop before Icmeler (like at the end of Marmaris) and start walking from there. We expected a lot of dirty roads because of the bad weather the last days. You are not going long uphill before you have a perfect view to Marmaris.
And a lot of logs everywhere, after the fire last year

A lot of logs everywhere
Me, having a break in the hill
It was nice to see all the way out of the bay – to the ocean outside
Marmaris is to the left in this photo, and here you can see where we escape when it is winds from south.
When you are at the top of the hill you have amazing view to the inland
And the view back to Marmaris of course
On the top of the hill there are some uphill and downhill
Astor on the top
Sharon on the top!
The view down to Icmeler
On the way down to Icmeler we followed the edge. It was gravel roads everywhere, some good and some was destroyed by erosion.
We had to stop up and have a look at the view around
Sharon and me
Nice colours in the mountain when the sun is starting to set
Me in front of Icmeler
From the mountains it came dark clouds so we were happy we were almost down
I marked the mountain we went to
Here is the track. It is possible to walk from the dinghy dock in Marmaris (+ 3 km) and also walk back along the promenade (+ 7 km). This trail was 6,66 km. We went down to Icmeler and took the bus back to Marmaris. The hill was around 300 masl.
