Cruise 2011 Day 5 – Dardanelles

Photos from the fifth day of the cruise are now online. A sample of the set is listed below. You can see the photos either at Flickr or Facebook (assuming we’re friends on FB).

The fifth day was our second sea day.  We spent the day cruising north towards Istanbul, through the Dardanelles and Sea of Marma. As we entered the Dardanelles, we passed Gallipolli and observed some of the memorials from World War I. On eht opposite shore was near the site of ancient Troy. One of the lecturers onboard gave a running commentary as the day went on and the ship sailed past various landmarks, but it was so cold and windy up on deck, that I didn’t spend much time outside.  So only a few photos for this day.
