|We stopped staring at Greece and decided to pay it a visit|
|We stocked up on raw almonds before we left Kas|
|Proof we were in Greece|
Several thousand people lived on the island at some points in its history, but today there are only 300 full-time residents. They travel to Kas on Fridays to shop at the weekly market and then return to their beautiful island. The main occupations appear to be fishing and tourism.
After our boat docked in the sheltered horseshoe harbor on the island we headed left while everybody else went right, into town, so we were virtually alone on a beautiful walk along the coast to another little harbor. We stopped to talk to a distinctively Greek-looking woman who was supervising the remodeling of her family home, the Admiral's House, perched right on the coast below the fort. We chatted for a while (in English) about life on the island and then headed back into the main harbor area for lunch.
|Most people live around the main harbor|
|And I thought there were a lot of cats in Turkey!|
|The cutest toilet I've seen in a while|
