Emek Hatechelet, The Blue Valley Park

While I remain saddened at the loss of our outdoor municipal pool in this location, the new park does probably serve a larger portion of the public and will become an important nature reserve.

Currently there isn't a lot of wild life, nor even domesticated animals, but there's a little. The terrain is steep, even where there are stroller paths. There are signs for handicapped parking, but it's not clear that entrance for handicapped vehicles is ready yet.

Take water, and food for a nosh. There is one restroom facility near the entrance. On a sunny day, take a sun hat. Other than that, enjoy the Galilee views and flora.

Life's a beach... at Nahariya

Tuesday we took a little day trip to the beach. Something so soothing and calming about the sound of the sea. The color of the water was amazing. Love this place!

Fluffy clouds over Ma'alot on the way to Nahariya. The bus is really cheap going out there.

The Mediterranean Sea. Yup, an hour away and these blue waters await.

It was a lovely afternoon.

I didn't get pictures of them, but we saw multiple tiny crabs and a few hand sized ones. Looked like maybe the tiny ones recently hatched.

Love the sea.

Tide was very high on Tuesday. But look at those colors!!
