There are some nice Lycian ruins right on the water, we checked them out and snapped a few self photos using the tripod and time-delay setting of the camera. I made Heather stand on the edge of a 20’ wall (I helped her get there) and I ran back and forth between her and the camera like a mountain goat to reset the camera.
