There were two beaches within the apartments reach at Oludeniz, My favourite one was the one known as the Lagoon. This was a stretch of Beach around a nearby cove which was owned by the various hoteliers. The Sand was wonderfully soft and the water in the Lagoon so clear you could make out the shoals of fish running about in it. A Key thing though – it was vast. In places the hotels were using parts of it for watercraft. What surprised me though was how the Local wildlife mingled quite happily with the sun worshippers.
Ducks , Swans and Bluebirds pottered their way around the sunloungers whilst the odd lizard played peek-a-boo from the tops of nearby trees…with me and my half-way aquaphobia – they put me at ease. And I even raised a smile when the big fishes circled round my cumbersome feet. They gave me an Impetus to get back in the water…and enjoy it.
