Sailing from Kapi to Baba Adasi
Our next sailing day was from Kapi to Baba Adasi, along the coast of mainland (see map of the front page). That was an easy sailing, about one nautic mile off the coast, with a nice wind and there was not much steering! With two rubber extending springs fitted on each side of the tiller and the boat was sailing by itself. There was plenty of time to take photos of companions’ boats!
Sailing from Tersane to Kapi
Our next sailing day was from Tersane to Kapi (see map of the front page). Same as Tersane, Kapi is in the Fethiye bay but it is on the continent. Tersane is another well sheltered cove but it was not as nice as Tersane. There was a restaurant awaiting for us with grilled fish and that was all we needed.
For sale ?
A hundred meters away from the restaurant, there stood this little ruined house. It was not in bad condition though it had lost its roof and that a fig tree is growing in the living! It would not have required much repair to be habitable. Sadly, it was not for sale, otherwise, I am sure it would have been sold several times as it is such a wonderful place!
The restaurant from oven level
When we arrived in Tersane at the beginning of the afternoon, we found this ovens standing still. They looked fine but later in the afternoon, they were lit and when we came to the restaurant, at night, they were used to grill our fish. They were not for fun but were where the restaurant cooked all the meals for a close to 50 persons! Would you do it ?
Amphoras and local tea pot
On top of a wall, near the oven were two Amphoras and local teapot
Were they for use or on display, I do not know for sure. My opinion is that they were still in use but that the heavy amphoras would soon be replaced by lighter (plastic?!) vessels. In Tunisia, actual earthenware amphoras that women carried on their head were replaced by plastic amphoras that cold be carried in the same way but that were much lighter. I would not be surprised if the same occurred in Turkey.
The restaurant from table level
As they had plenty of space and no neighbors objecting, the owners of the restaurant had built several verandahs, one after the other. The newest one was right by the sea and tenders as well as local small boats could moor to the table !
The restaurant from above!
From above, I had spotted there was a very welcoming small restaurant: just a small house where the owners lived and three long reed covered shelters with a dozen of tables, ready for our flotilla. Altogether we were about 50 : we were 13 boats with 3-4 crew each. Obviously, in this small place, the restaurant was designed for the flotillas and nothing else! We had excellent grilled fish, of course!
The first photo shows the entrance of the cove and the root of a nice little pier made of dry stones roughly arranged and with a wooden shelter at the end.
The second photo shows the hill on the right to the entrance. This is from where I took the photos of the previous tip.
The third photo is a close up on an amazing little wooden shelter at the end of the pier. It is shaded with palm leaves and I suppose it is designed for throwing a net to catch some fishes. I thinks see any other use.
The cove of Tersane is almost landlocked and an excellent shelter. There was plenty of space to moor our 12+1 boats. As the place was such a marvel, I decided I would climb on one of the hills that rose above the cove. The landscape was terrific, with several small piers protruding into the waters. The photos give various aspects of the sight.
