The Last of Turkey

sunny 30 °C

The second half of the cruise just kept getting better. We explored Butterfly Valley, hiked St.Nicholas Island, found an old couple that followed us around in their boat and made us Turkish crepes and survived the watersports guys that I'm guessing didn't have any liability insurance. The crew took great care of us and the food was as good as any we have had here in Turkey. Nat hasn't done much previous sailing and is already planning a sailing charter around the Greek Islands!
When we arrived in Fethiye yesterday afternoon we were all a little worn out but had made some new friends and most everyone agreed it was the highlight of Turkey so far. A few people had to catch buses or planes, but the rest of us all spent the night in the same hotel and all met up for a delicious meal at a little restaurant tucked into the back of town.

After 27 days it Turkey, it is time to move on, so this morning we got up early to catch the hydrofoil fast ferry to the Greek Island of Rhodes which is where we catch our flight tomorrow to the Island of Mallorca, Spain. It's just a quick stay here, but we are staying in the old part of Rhodes Town and the winding cobble stone streets and the old stone buildings are definitely something to see. We are heading out now in search of some fresh fish and some tapas...we'll write again when we get to Mallorca.
