It was very hard to say goodbye this morning to Berkay, Sevgi and Ömer, and I’m sure it was even harder for them to see Onur leave. I look forward to our next visit with them.
We drove to the small town of Göcek, which is quite a yachting haven. There are 5 yacht marinas, and every 3rd store in town is yachting-related (rentals, sales, equipment, clothing, etc).
The streets were pretty, immaculately clean and empty of the street dogs, cats and chickens that we’ve become accustomed to.
I felt like I was on the set of the Truman Show, but with a very small cast of extras.
The upside is that the non-yachting stores have really beautiful goods. We contributed to the local economy.
To ensure that riff-raff like us don’t stick around, the one beach in town charges 100₺ per person between 9am & 9pm. (It’s free between 9pm-9am.) I’ll take Kaş over Göcek any day.
Now on to the Dalaman airport…
