The Coast of Turkey

The Mediterranean coast of Turkey was warm and beautiful. It is hard to imagine the water color and clarity. After a couple nights in a treehouse (well, more like a stilt house among the trees) in laid back Olympos, I decided to take a "Blue Cruise" aboard one of the custom designed boats that ply these waters.

I spent four days on one of the Gulets that cruise the coast between Olympos and Fethiye. It was a great time to swim, read, sight-see, eat and converse with four couples from around the globe. A great time, and now I am in Istanbul and back in the city life for a few days.
