Blue Gület Cruise

From Marmaris we headed out on a 3 night boat trip to Fethiye on a wooden yacht called a Gület. It was ultra relaxing (once we finally departed four hours late...) and it was nice to meet and talk with some other people after pretty much spending every hour of the last 3 weeks together!

We cruised around many different islands and bays, swimming and kayaking in the clear blue Mediterranean water, drinking beers, playing cards and otherwise just laying around in the sun. The Turkish government has done a great job of protecting much of the shoreline from development, so there are lots of places you can only reach by boat. I have to admit I was a little depressed on the last day when we saw our first signs of civilization on the shores...
