September is zooming past and I haven't hit the 'publish' button for 8 days.
I should be telling you about road trips to unspoilt bays.
Or contradicting the gutter press that would have you believe that Turkish tourism is dead, by posting pictures of the cruise ships that regularly come to Bodrum.
But surely a visit by Greenpeace's Rainbow Warrior is more news-worthy.
You probably didn't hear about the symposium in Milas on wall-building techniques and marble construction in Caria.
There is definitely a post to be written on meeting up with past clients in Gümüşlük who brought me a copy of a newsletter I'd sent out in 1997, and a kind fellow blogger who handed over copies of 19th century charts.
The hiatus in blog production is most likely due to me having such a great time with visiting friends, especially ones that arrive with award winning Greek wine,
turn the terrace into a candle lit Shangri-La,
and leave me with a wire sculpture of Jake, that will be much treasured.
I promise myself that each of the above will be honoured with its own post.
Did I mention that my daughter is getting married in 2 weeks. Could also have something to do with the BacktoBodrum go-slow!
