Beautiful. All of the pictures.

(Sometimes I miss living near the beach)

Stan said...

Beautiful, sunny pictures. I see all is not doom and gloom in Israel. I played in the Mediterranean Sea off Spain when I was about the age of the boy in your picture.

It is a long time since I have been to a beach. I am longing to wet my feet after seeing these. :)

Felisol said...

Dear Robin,
I cannot find your Ruby Tuesday, so I'll enviously place my comment here.
Tel Aviv in April looks like a dream.
How I would love to plunge in those wonderful blue waves soothing my old, aching limbs.
Enjoy of all your heart.
From Felisol

Robin said...

I didn't have a Ruby Tuesday this week Felisol, I put up the Holocaust Remembrance Day post instead, and thank you for the heartfelt comment you left there.

I love the stones on the beach. And that gorgeous face, of course! :-)

Beth F said...

Beautiful shots! And beautiful daughter!

jams o donnell said...

Great shots! WHat a wonderful sight. It's been far too long since I set foot on a beach, even a relatively cold English one!

dianne - bunny trails said...

Oh how wonderful! Looks much warmer and more inviting than my snowy road trip!! Love the last shot - she's so beautiful!! :D

Julie@Momspective said...

Great shots and a great smile!

The light shines from Maya and around her - this is an amazingly beautiful photograph that you will treasure for all the years to come!

ROSIDAH said...

Stunning view! I would love to visit this beach. Beautiful smile. So adorable.

Kate Coveny Hood said...

I love your photography. So beautiful.

Jill said...

Oh I miss that view... and if my hubby saw those photos he'd probably cry! :)

Domestic Spaz said...

That is truly an amazing picture of Maya! All of them are amazing, actually. :)

maryt/theteach said...

Yes, only in Israel!! The gorgeous sun, blue, blue sea and the sand! Spring comes hot and early, eh, Robin! And there is the beautiful little girl, maya, again! So are her eyes blue, green, or what? :)

Robin said...

They're pretty much "or what" - some days they look green, some days blue, my mother claims that they look gold.

Whatever they are, I love them. Growing up I always wanted eyes that changed color, instead of the "doody colored" brown ones that I have (yes, I'm still traumatized from having a second-grade classmate tell me I had doody-colored eyes).

Jennifer said...

Wow, such beautiful shots!!!

Mojo said...

Looks like it was blowing pretty hard there that day. But in that last shot you can almost see an 8-year-old Robin. She's looking in the same direction and with the same inclination as your avatar photo which is what dials it in so well I think.

Sandier Pastures said...

Yay! It's beach time! You captured everything perfectly, especially Maya.

Daryl said...

More wonderful pix but I cant see the WORDS!!!! :-(

I grew up going to the Black Sea. Golden sands, cozy beaches, no sharks. Now I live 2 hours away from the Atlantic. I like a beach - doesn't matter where, but the ocean is so big - it looks like the world is split into half water half land and you are about to be swallowed in the crack between them :)
