We are in the beautiful Ece Marina in Fethiye, Turkey. All is well on board except for the usual aches and pains of 2 seniors. We love this harbor. Oh---I know you get tired of my saying that. The hardest part of sailing on is leaving the old, great place behind. We just came from the market with our load of fresh milk and lamb chops. We have to try to figure out how long it will be before we can get another load because it only comes certain days of the week. We are amazed at how many things get from Smith's in Las Vegas to Fethiye, Turkey.
We meet so many wondeful people, there's that word again. We just met Jim and Pat Curlin on North Star from Lottsburg, VA and feel like we have known them all our lives.
Fethiye is the border between the Carian civilization and the Lycian civilization. The mountains are filled with their tombs from 300-400 B.C. Each is a work of art which must have taken the greater part of someone's life to chisel from the mountainside. Here in Fethiye, they are located in backyards-along sidewalks-behind hotels. We have spent a week trying to find the museum. It is on the map, and several different people have given us several different directions. Today, we got on the dolmus and rode from one end of town to the other and back again. Lo and behold-there was a sign that said musee.
We plan on sailing East on Monday. The weather looks good-hot-hot-hot!
