Exploring Izmit: Kefken Rocks

Kefken rocks! Well, yes it does but I think it's called Kefken Rocks or Rocks of Kefken. Awesome God creation - ahhh the beauty of Turkey!

only nature can paint such a perfect pristine picture

Our first day of 2011 was spent exploring the city of Izmit, specifically Kerpe and Kefken on the Black Sea cost. It was a day spent with the entire Demirkol family. The weather, although a bit cold, is conducive for a good walk, morning tea and lots of family bonding. Uncle Necmi has a summer house in the area - it is 2 hours, more or less, (roughly 150-km) away from Istanbul on the black sea coast. It is quality time away from the city noise of Istanbul. The place is fairly secluded, quiet, relatively unspoiled and best part - perfect, green landscapes along the way.

We had fun exploring the Kefken red cliff/ rocks in the morning. I could only imagine the sunset view. It must be spectacular.  It was great fun exploring the rocks with the family.

pure happiness  - me, my husband's shadow and kefken rocks
almost all of us!
perfect black sea coast

the town and pension houses!
It is proving to be a perfect way to start our year - we have been so inspired since.

Keep exploring!
