Postcard from Tel Aviv

.

This shot I snapped on the beach in Tel Aviv earlier this month has a real "wish you were here" postcard-type feel to it, don't you think?

And before you all hate me too much - it really wasn't all that warm. The temperatures a few blocks away from the sea were lovely but right by the beach it was so windy that I was shivering in a sweater! Still better than snow and ice in my book though, so I'll take it :).

Visit Skywatch Friday for more skies from around the world.

Warm or not, it's still the beach, the sea, sand, waves, blue -- all those things Jerusalem lacks.

Coucou Robin, I haven't said hi in awhile. I hope all is well with you and your family. I have a friend from my town that may be sitting on that beach as I write :)

Pat said...

Oh, it does look so invitingly warm and serene! We're supposed to be getting 18 inches of snow tonight, with the power possible going out. It's gonna a heavy, wet snow, capable of snapping off large tree branches...and our house is all electric! :(

What a beautiful photo--since I live in the desert, I am partial to sea views. You seem to have the best of both worlds.

Robin, you have no idea how much time I spend looking at the header photo of your kitchen whenever I come to your blog. I love seeing rooms and houses from around the world!

Happy Skywatching.

Perfect for a picture postcard!
It looks like a few brave souls were baring their skin to feel the sun's warmth. :)

Great looking Beach...one can almost smell the sea breezes.

VioletSky said...

I wouldn't mind shivering in a sweater, with a blue sky like that overhead.

Totally Postcard-type! Great shot.

It always amazes me no matter how chilly it might be ,as long as the sun is out, you'll always find some people on the T.A. beach in a bathing suit.

Oh my that is a lovely shot.

But since the kitchen is my favorite room, and I do spend much time there...(don't have an island like you) but really enjoyed seeing your kitchen, and some of the little details in the background.

Sara said...

Gorgeous colors in this photo, Robin...and the cold wind does not show at all...I would have believed it was quite warm.

eden said...

Beautiful image. Wish I was there, Robin.

Have a great weekend.

All those people frolicking in the warm sunshine make me long to be on the beach!

SKY-SEEKERS

The sky-seekers, some people say,
Do not favor night over day;
They always look up,
The sky is their cup,
And keeping it full’s their cachet!

I remember this beach from a very long time ago. It is snowing like crazy again here this morning...the warmth of the sand and water is looking mighty inviting!
