Title: Fethiye

36:37.359N 29:05.946E
 
Wednesday 15th October
 
After a hot climb up the hillside in Tomb Bay we had lunch on the boat and then slipped our moorings headed for Fethiye, across the bay.  The wind was behind us at first and so we sailed under both headsails for a while.  Typically though the wind eventually died and so we motored into Fethiye. 
 
We had been advised to avoid the big, main marina there and go for a small one just beyond it, where the prices were much lower and were reduced by 50% if you ate in their restaurant.  Sounded like a good deal so we went for it.  At this time of year we have had no problem finding spaces, even arriving quite late in the afternoon, so were soon tied up and plugged in.
 
There was time only for showers, drinks and dinner that evening, but the following morning we went into town on the Dolmus.  We first had a look at the amphitheatre remains
 
 
before doing a spot of shopping in the old town for souvenirs and presents for home.  James bought a genuine fake watch - apparently he has to remember not to adjust the calendar between 10p.m. and 2 a.m. or it will cause the watch damage!
