On the subject of "Tides" - practically speaking there are no tides as has been said, but if you have a strong wind over a long reach of water (more likely in winter of course) you do get a certain amount of "surge" on the windward shore which feels like a bit of tide. Conversely on the lee shore it seems the tide goes out. This can be seen very graphically on the sandbanks near Tas Burnu fishing harbour. With tsunami you can get big surges, hopefully not where your house is though!

It would appear that there is a full festive package over the holiday period, I assume that most places will be offering a Christmas day dinner or something similar

Hope you enjoy it, there's plenty of laughs/mistakes. It's been taking most of my time the last 2 weeks. Thank God it's over after tomorrow night's performance.

Hope the pantomime goes well.

On the subject of tides there are tides but the rise and fall is very, very small (generally 10-30cm across the Aegean) compared to the UK, I've just checked online and whilst the sea is described as non-tidal all the sites I looked at agree that there are tides.

One of the most obvious places to see the rise/fall around Altinkum is at Marti Sitesi beach where the water is very shallow, It is actually most obvious during flat calm periods where the effects of wind and waves are nullified. It is the only place on the Yesilkent peninsula where I've seen wading birds occur rare, they generally occur during low water when there is some muddy sand for them to feed on,

Thanks Ted. You'd be surprised how many mistakes / missed lines there were. As usual it made life hell for me (trying to play the right music at the right time) and Patsy (the out-of-site prompter, although it was obvious where she was).

Let's try and get it better tonight and then it's all over with a huge end-of-Panto party. Didn't get home 'til 02:00 last night, or rather this morning.
:o :D :D :D
