Eilat – on the red seaI was born in the town of Eilat – today on the southern tip of Israel, borders with Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. One of the most beautiful places on this planet, a very unique place, ever summer 365 days of sun and amazing views above and under the water.
I was born into a small developing town. About 5,000 people at the time, mostly young families who ran south to the 60’s style at end of the world. The town was just over 10 years old, with no hospital and the closest city would be 6 hours away in a narrow road in the desert.
Today the city populates some 50,000 citizens and many more tourists – the main industry of Eilat. Desert Camel tours, Diving with the Dolphins, parasailing, wind-surfing and just tanning on the beach in the pleasant January sun are just a few of the many attractions that the town offers.
Our favorite beach in Eilat is the Dolphin Reef, where you could stay all day and swim with the dolphins – less crowded place on the western beach. I am sure we are going to be there, and I will have my camera with me. I am actually excited to visit my hometown and my family and I will sure share it with you.
Where were you born? Do you have special memories? is it a nice or unique place? is it very different today? Just wondering.
Seen the Sunny SnowThe sun popped out today, just to show us in a bright light what mother nature did last night - all covered with 4-5 inches of white snow. I had to get out for a short walk before my butt will get completely num. So these pictures are a better representation of the present, than those above:
What’s for dinner honeyPatti did not feel like cooking tonight, so a quick fixing of Jambalaya with Brussels Sprouts (One of my favorite vegetable) made the trick. Not too bad! (Love my wife’s cooking!)
I think that’s about it for the day. Still planning to see the spice store, and probably get some more gifts before we fly. I might leave the RV at the shop to install some additional solar panels while we are gone. This way we would be better prepared for dry camping later this winter.
Count down the days with me!
Thanks for listening.. Glad you stopped by.
