|As the sea shrinks the shores become muddy and like quicksand, if you're not careful you can find yourself stuck and sinking and about to loose your shoes|
|Thanks to Zohar for the pictures of me,|
Every year the Optimist Kayak Club has a days outing paddling on the Dead Sea, actually its just another excuse to get together for a picnic and a bit of fun.
The Hebrew name is actually The Salt Sea, if you translate it , this is more accurate than the English because its far from dead.
The salt formations on the shores look like snow and ice from afar and have a wonderful crystalline composition when seen close up.
Its rarely rains down there but we were lucky on Friday to get caught in a shower, the raindrops bouncing on the water were spectacular and everyone reacted with glee and smiles as we were washed by the fresh rainwater.
