We wanted to see the island, and the thyme fields, once more and decided to stay another day on the island. The next morning we strolled around town, visited the Bozcaada Museum, a small collection of local artifacts and historical tidbits. After a nice lunch under the pine trees at the center of the town, we returned to the hotel for rest. Later in the afternoon we drove around the island, went to some of the beaches to look for the special sand Elif had asked for. No luck! The plane trees at Ayazma were impressive; and, the house Ergun and Binnaz liked very much about 30 years ago was still interesting but in disrepair. Some of the beaches were empty due to high tide, most of the umbrellas and the beach chairs were in the water. In the evening we visited Yakamoz Restaurant again.
The photographs below are from the second day, the next post will be the thyme fields at sunset.
