We drove through Antalya which surprised me in its relatively small size and coherent traffic patterns. It was easy to get through and we easily found a grocery store to stock up on supplies. Toothpaste and whatnot. Then on to Chimaera for a hike up the mountain.
Chimaera is really one of the cool places to visit in Turkey. It's a long way off the main road and a helluva hike up the mountain (read about 1500 kill me stairs), but it's worth it
Then on to Kas which is a really nice, small town on the Med. The campground is in a fantastic location right on the water. Our camping is just up the hill and the cafe looked out on the bay. The facilities aren't top notch, ie there may be wildlife in the showers, but the setting is really awesome.
(S) What he left out is he fell down as we crawled around the old Byzantine chapel built next to the flames. And nearly cracked his head open. He's old. And clutzy.
