and now for something mildly different

Today,a cold wintery day, perfect for paddling in the warm waters of the Israel Electric Company.
Off we went, and after a short dip in the current we decided to go up the river.
 Alongside the power station is the Hadera river, a park has been created for recreation, and on the weekends it is quite popular, but today its deserted.
There is a small estuary where the water runs into the sea making a portage needed and then you can paddle upstream for about 15 minutes till you come to a barrier. I have not been past this  but others have and it leads into the industrial area of Hadera.
There were lots of fish jumping all around us and the river was brown and who knows how clean, but it made for something different .
Too often we just do the same old stuff day in and day out, so a different route can suddenly turn your day into one of adventure and discovery.
What a great way to start the day.
