Dead Sea


This picture was taken on 28 March 2006. I only recently acquired it from a friend. This is from the trip to Israel and it was taken at the end of our last day there. We were staying in a hotel on the Dead Sea and some of us couldn’t resist the opportunity to actually float in the famous body of water (I’m on the right). It was a truly unique experience. The water is so full of minerals that you can’t sink. We basically walked out until it was up past our waists and then leaned back like we were reclining in a chair – and that’s about as far as we got. If you float on your stomach it is almost impossible to get your feet under you and touch bottom. You are better off rolling onto your back and standing up that way. It was an amazing evening. The sun was setting, the water was warm and in the distance we could see towns on the opposite shore of the Sea in the country of Jordan. How often do you get to do that? Very cool.
