Turkey’s Turquoise Coast and Oludeniz

My group and I arrived by foot to Oludeniz after hiking 7 kilometers from the ghost village of Kayakoy, which you can read about here.  The blue waters of the Mediterranean sparkled and looked so inviting after our rather sweaty hike over the mountain hill, along with these colorful, plump soft seating areas, under the shade of draped cloth.

Most of us ordered a freshly squeezed frozen lemonade with mint that was sinfully delicious!

The beach was lined with people lazing beneath thatched umbrellas, enjoying the beautiful warm weather.

A few boats swayed in the light breeze on the dazzling waters…

The sky overhead was filled with vibrant, bold para-gliders…

After having lunch, and exploring the town a bit, we took a taxi back to our heavenly retreat at Villa Rhapsody.  What a wonderful day!
