An early stroll around Marmaris 

Welcome. I’ve uploaded a few photos of an early morning walk around Marmaris, by the marina and castle. I hope you enjoy them.

This photo was taken from Cafe Simple on the marina, where we drank many iced coffees and watched delivery staff go by, transporting food deliveries to people on the huge boats. I can only imagine how much money one needs to have a boat like those that are moored on the front. 


See the masts reaching into the blue Marmaris sky.


An early morning shot.


At the other end of the spectrum, the small working boats moored up.


I’ve become fond of the cats that walk the streets around these parts. Here’s a little one crossing the pavement. 


And another cute feline in a derelict property, up by the castle, poking his head out for a look.


The day we were there was a celebratory day, Youth and Sports day. There were balloons leading up to Marmaris Castle.



A look around the harbour.


You can tell we were out early, the streets were desolate ….


Except for the Tuborg delivery chap.


A seat to sit on, if you need a breather after trekking up to the castle.

And another, although, I’d approach this one with caution.


Lastly, I think this one was my favourite seating area.


Anyway, that’s the little walk over. Have a lovely day. And if you have a moment, check out The Next Girl.

The Next Girl

She thought he’d come to save her. She was wrong. 
Deborah Jenkins pulls her coat around her as she sets out on her short walk home in the pouring rain. But she never makes it home that night. And she is never seen again …

Four years later, an abandoned baby girl is found wrapped in dirty rags on a doorstep. An anonymous phone call urges the police to run a DNA test on the baby. But nobody is prepared for the results. 

The newborn belongs to Deborah. She’s still alive.

If you love Lisa Gardner, Patricia Gibney and Robert Bryndza, you’ll love this jaw-dropping new crime thriller from Carla Kovach. The Next Girl will keep you guessing until the very last page. 


Meet Me at Marmaris Castle

Romantic comedy novella, ‘Meet me at Marmaris Castle,’ is now available on Amazon. 

With the help of best friend Beverley, forty-five-year-old primary school teacher Annie Henderson, is hanging up her beloved cardigans and rediscovering her sexy inner-siren. Why? Because of a proposition made ten years ago. Jason’s words have never left her. ‘Meet me at Marmaris Castle, ten years from now, seven in the evening.’ 

As she battles with killer heels, bikini waxes and ill-fitting underwear, she toils with the doubts that swim through her head. ‘Will he turn up? If he does turn up, will he like me? Will I like him?’ After all, her only dream is for a happy ever after. Corny, yes – but it’s true. She wants her dream man, she wants him to fulfil all her desires and most of all she wants him to be the one. Is ten years too much of a gap though? 

Meet me at Marmaris Castle is a romantic comedy full of mishap, awkwardness and severe problems with fashion.
