Turunç Diary - October 2016

After 30 diaries, our mystery diarist is finally hanging up her camera and keyboard!

We couldn't let her 'retirement' pass without a huge "thank you" for keeping us informed and entertained through the winter months.  As a small memento, enjoy this selection of pictures from the nearly 400 she has posted over the past six years.
