2nd June, 2014.
We left Ariel and went to investigate the marina and see if there was room for us tomorrow and Wednesday as the wind is forecast to blow very strongly and it would be nice to be safe and sound on a pontoon knowing we can leave her while we investigate other areas which we hoped to visit on Ariel .
Fethiye is famous for their Lycian temple tombs built in the 4th century and which you can see from the water set on the cliffs overlooking the bay. We enjoyed the walk along the harbour passing the gulets which are sitting unused on the quay before we found our way to the cliffs and the tombs.
Fethiya stands on the ruins of the Lycian city of Telmessus. Earthquakes in 1856 and 1957 levelled most of the ancient edifices which included a temple of Apollo. A Roman theatre near the harbour is being restored and will be opened once finished.
We had coffee overlooking the bay with a fabulous view. Back at the harbour we spotted a large turtle swimming near the fishing boats. Jim had seen a small turtle swimming alongside Ariel at breakfast time.
