Photographer's Note

This cove is the first overnight stop for many of the yachts doing a blue cruise or 'gulet' trip from Fethiye to Olympus or points west such as Bodrum. (Pronounced as 'gullet'). St Nicholas once lived here and the ruins are fascinating to explore. The wake cutting across another wake of the speedboats was unusual. St Nicholas is also known as Santa Claus. http://www.whychristmas.com/customs/fatherchristmas.shtml#santa

His grave is at Myra near Demre, about halfway between Fethiye and Antalya and easy to visit from Kas. His actual bones were stolen and taken to Bari in Italy.
