We are now in Kas a shortish sail/motor down the coast and another attractive little harbour and old town nestling in the curving bay below a backdrop of vertical, 500m high cliffs.  These are again peppered with Lycian rock tombs and they even make an appearance within the town itself.  This makes for the intriguing juxtaposition of modern house sitting on top of ancient tomb in one case.  Alternatively, you come across one of the huge stone sarcophagi perched on the harbour wall looking a bit like it might be the local rubbish container!  The town has some upmarket shops, but since first mate bought 3 pairs of Turkish made sandals in one go in Kalkan, she had better stay away from any more retail therapy here.





It looks like we’ll have to extend our stay here as the winds have just got up – the 15kt forecast has already become a real 39kt gust in harbour with more to come by the look of it.  With the next stop being an anchorage, we’ll stay here until the winds abate a bit.
