Mina put her bathing suit on, Elif got the garden hose running for Mina to jump in the puddles. She did not want to get wet too much, but Elif teased her by plashing her up to her waist. After that, she did not mind getting wet. She took off her bathing suit, dried off and enjoyed the freedom of running around with no clothes on. A little later she took a bath, I helped prevent water from getting on her face.
Later in the afternoon, we walked to see Filiz at Ayvalik Music Academy that she ran. Mina found the grand piano fascinating and with permission from Filiz she sat on the bench and bang-bang-bang… She loves music in general, for some reason she has a particular inclination towards classical music. Maybe she will be a musician like Ruthie, Jan’s mother.
After the brief piano encounter, we went to the Sea Urchin, a new restaurant. It is right on the water, clean, and I enjoyed it very much. The food was good, particularly good that day as they were filming a visit by a food critic. It is one of the best restaurants in Ayvalik. Mina ate a little bit of this and that, but later enjoyed the grilled chicken they made for her. Here are some photographs from these experiences.
