Okay, now we've hit the gorgeous turquoise coast. Oludeniz has one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. A sort of teardrop of beach front protected by backdrop of mountains. The aqua water shines with and calming stillness. Endless steams of paragliders circle overhead all day, launching from behind the mountains and landing on the strip parallel to the beach... and when you see the aerial shots you can see why. Our days in Oludeniz consist of spending hours sitting on the beach before taking a swim to cool down from the heat. The water is deep within meters of the shore but is so clear that you can see your feet and the white rocks below. The best part of the beach has been made a national park, which by Turkish standards seems to mean that tourists are welcome but they have to pay. When you consider how spectacular the beach is you don't mind forking out the few Turkish Lira entry fee. Obviously spending time on the beach during the day we've had plenty of other spare time to occupy. We play a lot of cards, backgammon and I've even been working on improving my awful hacky skills. It's agreed that by the time we get back to London we will all be masters. Last night we watched the Liverpool vs Chelsea Champions League match at a bar up the road with a bunch of English tourists. At half time I fell asleep in an inviting hammock with a pint on my lap and woke in the late second half to Paul's jubilation. The night turned in to a total piss up, mainly because Paul is a Liverpool supporter, and before we knew it we were all celebrating the Liverpool, dancing like k*** heads, trying to play pool and saving Jodi from various drunken antics... she was kicked out twice and the bar staff kept telling us our friend was on the street... or in the toilet. The night ended with me and Phil haggling with the taxi driver, threatening to walk the one hour trek back to camp if we didn't get our price. Yep, must have been seriously drunk to think that was gonna happen! Luckily for all of us Lauren had the sense to make sure we took the cab and made it safely home. For some, the beer scooter miraculously saved the day again!
