Dean and his wife Martha first came to Turkey in 1980, and in 1983/4 they had a house built in Kalamar Bay - probably the first villa in that area.

Ali KaragülAli Karagül, better known to many as "Fisherman Ali" or "Kaptan Ali" died this evening, (Sunday), when he was hit by a vehicle as he walked home on the D400, in the dark, from Kalkan to his home in Ulugöl.

The Jandarma have told KTLN that the driver did not stop, and the Antalya Police and Jandarma are actively searching for him or her.  A small piece of the car was left behind at the scene of the accident. 

Ali was an unmistakable and well known character in Kalkan.  He could often be seen in the harbour by his fishing boat, usually surrounded by cats that he would feed with any leftover fish.
