Ekincik, Turkey (Day 2)

After a wonderful nights sleep in one of the 9 Master Bedrooms aboard the Berrak Su, we woke up to Angel greeting us with Turkish Black Tea and a Mediterranean breeze that made our world seem like pure serenity.
 
 We sat down for our typical Turkish breakfast consisting of Fresh Turkish Bread, Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Turkish Olives, Turkish Cheese selections, Fresh Fruit, Honey/Jam and our daily delicious concoction prepared by our master chef.
After breakfast we rented a fisherman's motor boat and headed to Turtle Beach.
With no such luck viewing the Turtles, we cruised up the Dalyan River to the ancient port of Kaunos. Kaunos contains the remains of an ancient Carian city and includes a host of Hellenic, Roman and Byzantine remains – particularly its impressive theatre.

We jumped back in the boat and went to view the Lycian Tombs which was absolutely breathtaking.
Our captain took us to the little town of Maras Cad for our first meal off of Berrak Su. We dined at Aktos Restaurant and got a wide variety of delicious Turkish food, drank fresh pomegranate cocktails from the garden outback and took in the beautiful landscape.
Erica was a little seasick, so she took a nap in the hammock.

Once lunch was over, we headed home on an extremely choppy boat ride. Luckily for us, Mark owns numerous boats, so he assured us we wouldn't capsize. He was very calm as you can see..
The rest of us were a little hesitant.
Once we arrived home, we enjoyed the beautiful crisp water.
We enjoyed another wonderful Turkish meal prepared by our wonderful chef, had some wine and called it a night. Overnight in Ekincik.
