Cydnus River at Tarsus

On our way out of the city of Tarsus, Turkey we passed by this scenic spot on the Cydnus River.  No, we didn't get to make this a lunch stop, although it would have been a beautiful little place for such a stop.  The waters are cold so the place was a respite to the warmer temperatures of the plains.  In fact, Alexander the Great visited this very site.  It is said that he almost died from the after effects of bathing in these cold waters.

Enjoy these pictures and thanks for visiting "Sketchings .... "!

P.S.  We didn't go swimming.  It was cold and we had an example from ole' Alex the Great!
