Fish Tank

A couple of months ago my husband was in Turkey and he went to this town called Cesme in Turkey along the Aegean Sea to visit his childhood friend. While he was there his friend's neighbour had this incredible fish tank in front of his house. This is only their summer home......the person who owns this home apparently loves fish. My husband said it looks incredible, but he's out there everyday feeding them.
This town Cesme has quite a large fishing industry there. Every morning the fisherman bring in their fish they 'catch of the day' and have an auction at the docks. There are lots of restaurant and hotels coming in to buy the fresh fish for their menu's.
This town is also a very busy tourist attraction due to the beautiful beaches it has and some amazing summer homes for the folks from the big cities and 5 star Hotels.
Most restaurants specialize in fish palates.........I was never a big fish person till I ate here, you can really taste the freshness especially when you have it with one of their salads. Ahhh brings back memories to my taste buds.

Hope you enjoyed your tour.

  5. What fantastic pictures. It is hard to imagine a fish tank that size for personal use only. Truth is stranger than fiction I guess :-). I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary
