Day 4: Pamucak - Dilek - Kusadasi
The morning was wonderful: the sound of the waves, the warmth, the smell of the sea.
Waking up, we went sail and got so carried away that we left late. We needed to replenish our stocks of provisions and buy spare cameras and patches. I have already run out. When we had a swim, we moved towards the city of Kusadasi.
For a whole hour before leaving, I tried to seal the camera - but to no avail, it still gradually lowered.
City beach Pamukak. After wandering around the city for an hour, we found something like a car market, where we bought everything we needed for the bikes (1 camera - 10 liras, a large tube of glue - 2 liras). We bought food at the supermarket. I was going to go to the park and spend the night in it. As we found out later it was a bad idea :)

Fare. Cyclist = pedestrian
We are there, in Kanyon) This is a short way to the other side of the mountain range, around which the reserve is located

Having gone a little deeper into the park, we found a small clearing dotted with hoof marks. I then thought: I wonder for what period of time so many traces have gathered here? It turned out that a lot of time is not needed for this: wild boars roam in herds, some individuals reach 1.5 meters in length. I met one of them, but the photo was the last thing I thought of :) I had to return to the entrance to the park and spend the night at a local campsite.
Magic sunset in the reserve
Lighting the stove for dinner
The checkpoint at the entrance to the reserve, a kilometer from it, we spent the night on the seashore. During the day, I liked Dilek the most: there is no such nature anywhere in the Crimea. We rode the bikes: 35 km.
