Kas is King

After spending the last couple days in Kas (pronounced like "cash"), we took an overnight bus back to Istanbul. In Kas, the weather was great - 70's and sunny during the day - and we were finally able to scuba dive. Visibility was lower than usual due to storms earlier in the week, but we were still able to see lots of fish as well as plenty of ancient pottery strewn across the sea floor. Our divemaster also spotted an octopus hiding in the rocks, and, going against standard scuba practice, beat on the rocks and threw empty shells at it to get it to move. Fortunately, this didn't happen to her.

We also hiked around Kas, a pretty town nestled between the cliffs of southern Turkey and the Mediterranean Sea. The Lycian Way runs through Kas, and we hiked a few miles down the shore, stopping by a small pebble beach and catching some nice views of the sea. We also explored the Lycian Rock Tombs around Kas. You can check out all of our pictures in the "slideshow" sidebar.
