A different kind of holiday

I wasn't sure where to put this as these holidays are all over Turkey. However there are a few on the Datca peninsula, so here is as good as anywhere. This looks like a very interesting idea especially if you are up for an adventure and maybe don't have much cash to splash. I would have loved this a few years ago but am probably a bit too lazy for it now!

Re: A different kind of holiday

Shall we get a crowd together then Shirl? I love the idea of that kind of trip but not sure I could do all that hard work.

Re: A different kind of holiday

I take it you won't be coming with us then Akasya. Shirl, maybe they'd let us sit on the floor and shell the almonds. I reckon we would be OK with that. I think a TLF holiday on one of these farms would be a hoot.

Re: A different kind of holiday

Hey Jane, you don't need to pay for a holiday for that you can always pop into our garden to shell a few almonds!!

Pig Bay is where Tony was based as captain of a charter boat for the guests staying at that hotel (almost 30 years ago). The manager of the hotel was also someone we all know very well now (ex book shop owner!). The company they were working for was called Hot Turkey!

There is a facebook link now for this bay DomuzCukuru: https://www.facebook.com/groups/pigsbaycamp/

Excellent venue for this type of holiday, a real hideaway.

Re: A different kind of holiday

Hmm well I am not surprised that a certain book shop lady would be working for a company called Hot Turkey!!! ROFL. Hil and I had considered a couple of nights at Pig Bay this summer but when push came to shove we wimped out due to the heat. They were adverising for volunteers early this year to clean the place but I don't do cleaning, well at least as little as possible. As for the almond shelling, I'll bring Shirl if she can get up one day but we will need to be supplied with those baggy trousers for modesty reasons and copious amounts of vodka (think that's her drink).
