It's Friday and time for another Fethiye photo. Last week's photo was the view of Fethiye's Karagözler and the Ece Saray Hotel, taken from the marina at the Yacht Classic Hotel. We've spent a lot of time there this last fortnight as our friends have been staying there. Alas, another holiday has come to an end and we'll be taking them to Dalaman Airport later on today.
But let's not dwell on that. On the blog this week, we've had a a series of fabulous food and views from Lycian Turkey's village of Kabak and the road that leads up to the village. Today, we're going to round that mini series off with a photo we stopped to take while we were driving back from the Olive Garden towards Ölü Deniz.
Ölu Deniz and the Mediterranean from the Faralya roadTo be honest, the sun was blinding as it lowered in the sky, so the stop was a good break from the futile shielding of eyes. We couldn't see too much as we were taking the photos either but this one didn't come out too badly. A fitting end to this series of posts and to our friends' holiday.
We will return to Kabak, maybe in October or November, when the weather is cooler. This area is a beautiful stretch of the Lycian Way - many who have trekked the whole length say it's the most beautiful stretch - and we want to hike along more of the path. As we said in previous posts, Kabak and Faralya are a perfect base for walkers and we want to make the most of that in the autumn and spring months. We couldn't help but feel a little bit of frustration that it was so hot while we were up there last week - too hot to consider a good leg stretch in the hills - but then that's a good excuse to go back there soon...
