Flag of Turkey  , Canakkale,
Friday, July 11, 1997

Really hot as we were driving to Gallipoli this morning so we rolled the sides of the truck up for the first time. Even better views now. The route seemed a lot more scenic than I remembered it. Stopped at a large town for Ashley and I to do some food shopping. It was good fun as everyone we met was so friendly.

In the afternoon we visited the Gallipoli museum and Lone Pine Cemetery. It's such a beautiful spot with the pine trees and the coast that its hard to imagine the dreadful things that happened here.

We are in a rough camp next to our own private beach. As soon as we got here we all rushed in to go swimming. Had to clamber over some horrible rocks first. Jane and I managed to get some nasty spines stuck in our feet. Couldn't get most of them out as they're in quite deep. We're hoping they will work their way out naturally.

After dinner we sat around the campfire looking at the sea and stars. As I was sipping some JD it was near enough perfect.

The group is gelling together quite well now. The first week was a bit strange as we weren't doing anything together except sit on the truck. Everyone is more relaxed now we know each other a bit better and have some shared experiences.
