Alas, the sea season also finished here last week! While on my way back from my last sea and sand pleasure, this ruin grabbing my attention,compelled me to stop the car and shoot it!

Really nice bahadir,, good thing you stopped. There's just something about ancient ruins that give me goose bumps

In fact I usually tend to be reluctant to stop while driving which drives my wife mad:lol:, but do not hesitate tocross hills and swamps to reach a moldering or a ruin on the other hand!! This one is surely not an ancient one, having no sign or whatsoever. Ah, some mansion in ruinswhich reminds methese stanzas by Poe:

Some sepulchre, remote, alone,
Against whose portal she hath thrown,
In childhood, many an idle stone -

Ah, remind her thatĀ*some are born to be long distance captains sailing on open seas, some boatmen travelling across the gulf...(which also hints theĀ*probable consequences of rebellion on the ship!) :lol:

Really? Thanks for keeping me abreast! The blackand white newspaper I follow (which my wife calls 'boring' :G) hardly gives such news.However, I vaguely remember someoneI know asking me to join a competition called survivor or sth
