Boating on the Bosphorous



It has been a whirlwind of a week in Istanbul and I've hardly had a moment to catch my breath and share the delightful sights I have seen and enjoyed.  The city is filled with so much history and culture and there is no way I can capture all of it in any of my posts.

But in the upcoming days, I'll try to give you a glimpse of the
Istanbul that we had the joy to experience!

Later, my friends,

I love that bustling harbor! What fun! Look forward to more photos of Istanbul! Another one of those places I wanted to visit while I lived in Europe, but didn't make it to this one! Terrific capture for the day! Enjoy!

I assume you were on the water to take this shot. Your profile says sailor but surely you didn't all the way over there.

Love that sunset glow on the horizon. The water is a bit choppy so that gives the photo a lot of character.
