Olympos in the early morning

Günaydin or 'good morning'!. Got up at 7 a.m. in order to see the beach with the rising sun and in broad daylight. Hadn't seen it that way the day before because it was allready dark, but I did swim at 9.3O p.m. and it was quite an adventure to find the right road from my pension to the coast because it was soo dark and the only light I had was the one of my mobile phone.
So know Olympos in the morning and I was even more impressed. Such a pitty that I had to leave 3 hours later because I booked a minivan that would bring me to the place where I would start my boat trip alongside the coast. The beach was so beautiful that I stayed there for a few hours relaxing and listening to some songs by an elder hippielady who had breakfast there with her family. My plan was first to go on foot to Chimaira but because I heard it wasn't really worth visiting I stayed just to relax. I was one of the 6 people that was on the beach there and really unbelievable because the beaches are packed if the sun shines in Belgium in summer. Still had a beer left from the night before so I decided to start my day with it, lol.
My fellow travellers decided the night before to go to Orange Bar but because of some diarrhea problems I didn't manage to get there. The minivan picked me up at about 10 and I left Olympos with pain in the heart. I'll sure come back here once in my life.
