Easter Sunday walk

On Easter Sunday afternoon we joined the Bodrum hash house harriers on their traditional run. Well, 5 keen people ran and the rest of us walked and enjoyed the warm sunny weather and the masses of flowers everywhere. The perfume from the orange blossom in the orange groves was almost overpowering but glorious all the same.
