Rosh Pina

.
Here's a sneak preview of our quick little getaway up to Rosh Pina. We stayed in a fabulously quirky little inn which was just crying out to be featured in a Ruby Tuesday post. I'll be posting loads more pictures and a bunch of perfect-for-blog stories in the coming days, but for now enjoy this quick peek. All of the photos in this post were taken on the grounds of the inn. You can tell the innkeepers like their bright reds and blues.

Yes, that last one was also taken at the hotel - it was cold and damp outside but they heat the pool to a toasty 88F (30C) in the winter. It was utterly delightful, and when we got a bit chilled there despite the warm water we just hopped across to the jacuzzi a few feet away. Hard life, isn't it? Too bad vacations always end so quickly...

.

Have a wonderful holiday week everyone, however you're celebrating.

That wagon is a feast for the eyes but my favourite is that old water pump, the bird detail is exquisite. Happy RT!

The rubies here are great. But the pool scene is priceless. Years ago. I had physical therapy at a rehab hospital where the water temp was the balmy 88F like you had. Warm water is much less of a shock when you jump in...

Hi!
Great vacation! Love that red pump, brings back memories of my grandparents place. They had one of those in the back yard and it worked. Have a safe and happy holiday season!!

So glad that you had a wonderful time! I left you a little something on my blog several posts back. When you have a couple of extra minutes, come by and "get it"!

Love the wagon! It looks like something from a fairy tale. A warm swimming pool sounds like a great idea right about now; it's warmed up to 20 degrees today, but it still feels cold.

Enjoy your vacation!

These are wonderful reds. Merry Christmas!

I'm currently looking out the window at snow and ice. And now I'm dreaming about the 88F water. So jealous, that sounds fantastic. Happy Hannukah!

Such lovely shots. I love the one of Maya. I want to go there and hop from pool to jacuzzi!
