David hosted me in his apartment, which was smack in the hub of Fethiye, and had a dream view over the central harbor area. These were the fanciest digs I enjoyed in Turkey.
To the west from Dave's is a peninsula (Karagözler (Blackeyes) on the map). And at its mainland base--just to the left of the center of this picture--is a boat yard, where crafts of various sizes are built and maintenanced. Unique was this pirate-looking vessel, destined, I learned, to be a floating disco. Yes, Fethiye is an expat magnet (lots of Brits), and general party place.
Finally I spotted this little beach strip and ultimately was able to clamber down to it. Where I swam peacefully until near sunset.
