The trip to Bodrum from Kos, Greece takes less than an hour. Here you see the coast of Turkey.
Half way across to Turkey, the ferry changes out the Greek flag with the Turkish flag.
The Castle of St Peter in Bodrum was built in 1402.
There are lots of "big" boats everywhere in the Aegean.
It's time to get into town and get the day started.
Here's another view of the ferry.
First up, we head into the markets.
..everything from drums..
...to glassware and lamps..
Only at McDonalds in Turkey can you get the infamous McTurco.
..and much more.
After lunch, you can always visit a bakery right down the street.
We opted for something a little more traditional, the Le Roka.
And Le Roka had one of the best meals of the trip...doner kebabs...
of which we owe a debt of gratitude to the master chef!!
Next we stop into a gallery where evertything is about fish.
Dalyanu is about everything fish.
On our way back to the ferry, we found this gentlemen selling bird whistles.
He makes these by hand and when you fill them with water they sound just like a whiporwil.
We also decide to stop at a streetside cafe for a foo foo coffee, because...
..traditional Turkish coffee can be just a little strong, if not thick.
The closer you get to the marina, the more chances you have for "last minute" purchases.
EU rules require very plan labeling on all cigarette boxes about the health threat of smoking.
The Turkish coast guard is fairly serious about protecting the shoreline as this 55 caliber machine gun testifies to.
Some parting views of St Peter's castle.
On the way back, we pass some parasailers.
