The protected harbor here in this Black Sea town is formed by a crescent of land that extends into a peninsula, seen on the right and in the background. The wealthier section of town is, naturally, the one with the sea exposure. But that doesn't seem to bother the friendly dog who followed us in our travels. As did several cats. Turks, I was told, tend to take care of certain cats and dogs as their pets, but rarely do they actually own them or let them into their houses. Hence the great numbers of them on the street and in the parks, especially in Istanbul.
