Antalya is known for providing Turkey with citrus. The tangerines were in full bloom wherever we looked. This tree was in the parking lot and tasted delicious!
Nothing was roped off. No signs prohibiting the cousins to explore. They were having a super time.
The stone still showed intricate details of art.
It was like the Roman and Greek empires I learned about years ago.
This appears to have been the public baths.
beautiful marble collumns still standing
mosaic floors still in tact
This was the meeting area of the city officials
marble tiled floors
This shows the underground plumbing system that they had. Totally amazing.

After these last 2 photos were made, My Man suggested we have a photo taken of me and him. We chose a spot under a stone archway near the underground waterways. He stepped up about 4 feet to climb up to the arch and the earth crumbled, sending him falling. He instantly knew he had broken his arm. We rushed back to the car and headed to the largest hospital in town. Ross was navigating through unfamiliar territory with hospital signs everywhere. Most of these signs led to small clinics and we knew we needed a large hospital. He saw a billboard for the large hospital and called the number on it as he was driving. It was the number for a hospital in Istanbul. Not helpful. He asked them if they knew where the best hospital was in Antalya. They told him the name of the hospital and said it was in the center of downtown. Ross headed that direction. He came to an intersection and truly felt led by the Spirit to make a turn. He said he had no logical explanation for the turn, except that his urge was strong. He made the turn, pulled over to ask a pedestrian how to get to the hospital and we were just one block away. God is so good.
