We left the gulet this morning 🙁 and boarded a bus at the port of Fethiye. We traveled to Antalya, but stopped to see the Roman ruins in Myra and also visited the Church of St. Nicholas in Demre. Along the way, Peter took several pictures of the solar hot water systems that we saw everywhere in Turkey (see separate page). We arrived in Antalya late in the afternoon. We had a great bat show during the outside dinner at our hotel’s restaurant.

We're always on the lookout for good movies and documentaries. This billboard was seen from the bus as we were leaving Fethiye. It was one of the very few movie ads seen on this trip, and since it was near a stop sign, I had an opportunity to photograph it. I found a few sources about the movie, this one seemed to give the most information.

This part of the Turkish coast is popular with Russian tourists.

Peter thought it odd to have a store in southern Turkey advertising a Russian web site.
