Zalmon Brook and Old Akko


While Europe,Canada,parts of the US and even Australia (where it is summer now) are covered with snow we are experiencing this lovely weather in late December,although we would like to have some more rain if it is not to much to ask for..it is sad to see the “poor” brook almost dry.

Any how we decided to take advantage of this weather and took of to the Northern part of the country called Galil and as expected not to many people where out there in the middle of the week and that is what we like.

We hiked along the Zalmon brook and although the water level was really low still we could enjoy the hike,the surroundings and the small water pools traps along the way.

After taking it easy for about 3 miles we decided to head to the old city of Akko situated on the Mediterranean Sea and has a long history ,ancient structures and I would like to share it with you.

What you call the Zabar fruit, looks like what we call Prickly Pear here in Arizona. Do you know if it is the same thing?

I do not know how you call it in the US,it is a Cactus fruit.
It has small needles from the out side, we peel the skin and eat the sweet fruit inside,very tasty.
