After a few enjoyable days in England visiting family and friends our flight to Dalaman went wıithout a hitch. The disappointingly cool and showery weather quickly gave way to a more mediterranean climate as we made our way west from Gocek aboard the Sanola.
We stopped in Ekimcik Buku and ate an excellent and very efficiently produced, if rather expensive, dinner at My Marina. Next morning we motored along the Dalyan River by Turkish water taxi to visit the Lycian tombs and ancient Caunos - an old Roman harbour that is now a mile or two inland because of silting. We also saw loggerhead turtle tracks heading in and out of the sea and several turtles in the water.
The sailing has been great every day as we made our way westward along the Datca peninsula. We are now ın Palamut moored in the small town harbour next to the swimming beach and Merhaba bar.
