Along the Turkish Riviera the coastal city of Anatalya is home to resorts and ancient monuments. The city is awash in history, luxury, poverty, and its own special charm. A regional powerhouse for thousands of years, it also has a wonderful old harbor surrounded by cliff top fortifications. Still, the fortress walls aside, one of the local fishing vessels had its own security system. This girl – on what appears to be the “Heya” was rather anxious about the absence of her owner/captain. While I’m sure she was no-doubt friendly, she was also quite attentive and made sure that those of us lining the harbor docks did’t so much as consider trying to step onto her master’s boat. I can only imagine that she was quite the intrepid fisherwomandog.
