Sun Salutations-Mediterranean Shore on a Wintry Day

Mediterranean Beach

Mediterranean Beach

A couple of days ago the sun was shining brilliantly as it does very often here in the winter months in Israel.  Despite low temperatures, the Mediterranean sun is always a joy.  A bad storm was predicted and expected to last for most of the week, so I decided to take advantage of the weather and went down to the shore to walk and do some yoga.  It was glorious, until the storm clouds began to roll in.

Here is a story in pictures of the few hours I spent there.

On the way up the beach, to the North, the wind was at my back I barely felt the effort of walking the couple of kilometers.  As the clouds started to thicken I decided to head back.

Although there was a brisk wind in my face on the way back making the return walk a challenge, the walk INTO the warming sun was delightful.  Even in winter, the sun here is comfortable as well as warming although through to my joints.  At one point, despite the wind, I had to remove a couple of layers of clothing.

While relaxing over a cup of coffee, the clouds started to move South and I realized it was time to head home before the storm hit.

A Frame of Wild  Snap Dragons

 

I spent the weekend on a lovely two day Nature Hike in the Northern Galillee, just before the weather turns too hot to enjoy this type of activity.

This is a shot taken from the Naftali Hills near Metula near the Northern Lebanese Border, looking down on the Hula Valley.  The flowers in the foreground are wild snapdragons.

Hope to post more photos from the weekend shortly.

Hiking through the western Galilee


This past weekend I went with a group on a two day Nature Hike and just want to share with you some of the beautiful things I experienced.

Enchanted Forest carpeted with Wild Cyclamens-A protected species in Israel


 

There is nothing like being with Nature to bring harmony and balance back into our lives.

This reminds me of the Forests Above Dharamkot, Dharamsala, India

So much diversity in Nature in shapes and sizes

It was a truly blessed two days (although I felt the results of all the walking up and down mountains, and valleys for the next couple of day in my legs, which protested fiercely!!)

Olive Tree - THese trees are pure art to me in form. You can see more in the Facebook links

 

Another Masterpiece Created by God
