|19th Century mosque at Kayakoy village|
The kids in our group had a grand time riding two local camels and lots of laughs were had by all as these comical creatures rose and trotted down the dirt path. We then went into the bustling town of Fethiye for a nice lunch in the old quarter after visiting the lively fish market and provisioning our gulet for tonight's meal.
The guys headed to Perry's favorite barber shop for a traditional Turkish shave which involves a double shave with a straight edge razor followed by a quick trim of all ear and nose hair by scissors and then a real flame is whacked against the ears and cheeks to burn off all remaining hair. The shave finishes with a great massage and a bracing lemon cologne face wash. The shave takes about 20 minutes and costs only $10... Several people decided to get hair cuts as well and the results were great. The women joined in by getting pedicures and massages so the whole group ended up getting into the act..good fun for all.

Then we celebrated our son Jordan's 9th birthday with fresh baklava and a cake that we bought in town today.
