The coast in this area runs south to north, leaving us in shade while sitting at a cafe late in the afternoon.
This morning when Dani and I got off the ship we looked up at the fortifications. Obviously completely walled starting in the 1220s, the town has long since expanded beyond that. Originally intending to hike along the shore and see the fortifications, we wound up heading up the hill.
When the path ended partway up, we got on the trail. When the trail ended in a pile of stones we climbed up a bit and wound up on the wall. Think Great Wall of China only 24 ” on the inside of the crenelations. This is Turkey, you are responsible for yourself. If you do something completely stupid (like fall off the wall) you are going to die. Oh, well. Any, we climbed up the steps of the wall to the top where you had to scale down the wall. There was a couple ahead of us and some others who kindly grabbed my backpack so that I could clamber down. (Swiss Couple doing same thing).
After that, hiking down, looking at other strange stuff
seeing the Red Tower and heading back to the ship for lunch.
We are out again, finding Internet and wandering the town!
