Winter on the beach in Israel

Map picture

We are expecting a storm, the TV stations are alerting us to be prepared for strong winds,lots of rain ,snow in the Golan Heights and maybe snow in Jerusalem.

But today only 50F ,high waves ,clean and empty beaches near Netanya and only 10 minutes from home, so we packed lunch,dressed warm and took a drive to the Mediterranean Sea ,our Western Boarder.


As we have not a drop of rain during the summer ,from March till November we are happy for every drop during the winter to full our only Lake ,Lake Kineret in the Northern part of Israel.

We have developed an irrigation system to help water the crops during the dry period and by now have few plants to produce fresh water from the sea, in any case we pay high price for water and have to use it wisely.

As I see it there is no balance in the world:

Some places have floods,others are dry.

Some have too much snow and others wish they had some just to be to built a doll with carrot instead of a nose.

So I guess we all have to adjust and make the most of it. …

That picture of the lifeguard(?)stand on the beach is just incredible.
