I grew up 40 minutes away from the Mediterranean sea

Submitted by Ozlem

My name is Ozlem. I am 31 years old. I am a mother of 2 and a wife. I am from Turkey. I grew up 40 minutes away from the Mediterranean sea. I know everybody loves the ocean. When I was a kid I couldn’t wait to go to the sea to swim. When I was 26 years old I moved to the United States. I have been really depressed because I miss the ocean so much. Then I went back to Turkey and I met my now husband. He took me to the castle by the sea at Kizkalesi Turkey. It is a beach with a mainland castle and a castle about 200 meters off the beach on a small island. The story about the castles is that the king of the mainland castle had a daughter. The king’s oracle had a vision that his daughter would die do to a snake bite. So the king had a castle built for her about 200 meters out in the sea on a small island. Unfortunately a snake found its way into a fruit basket that made it to the castle and bit and killed the princess. That is the story of the castle by the sea. Me and my husband love this place very much. When we were there we would go to the castles and pray. We even named our daughter Deniz (which means sea in Turkish).
