Masts and Snow

Fethiye – South West Turkey.

I was up at 8am this morning. Made my breakfast, packed up and walked down to the bus station (otogar). It was a half-sized bus and went half-way to Mugla. At Mugla I changed buses and made it all the way here to Fethiye.

You can see snow-covered mountains from the ocean. That is pretty amazing.

There is lots of money tied up in boats around here. So many boats.

I happened upon the shipyards where they are making even more schooners. How many do they need? But they are amazing boats. All made out of wood. Gorgeous. Here the ribs have been put together.

This one had the skin on. Thin layers of wood, put on diagonally.

There were lots of boats hauled out getting work done.

A couple of guys cutting some steel. It looked like it might be going to fit somewhere on the keel.

And this was not the only marina. There were dozens of them.
