the Israel trail , by sea. Rosh Hanikra to Sdot Yam in three days

The Northern border , Rosh Hanikra in the background is the start of our trip

It takes a while for all 28 of us to get packed and ready to go

Various degrees of sun protection are to be seen

launching on Betzet beach is always a challenge 

but once we are all in  off we go

there are some interesting places to explore along the way

and a nice bay and beach for a coffee stop

colorful kayaks 

another version of sun screen

Acco is a ancient walled city, always interesting to paddle past

the walls make a good backdrop

and the Acco harbour is always busy

first night looking over Haifa bay at sunset

Its amazing what you can get into a kayak if you really try

calm seas in the morning 

not much shade at noon 

and always great food every time

attention grabbers

second night at Newe Yam

happy campers

one lady has been on the water for two days and one has just arrived, guess which is which

along the Habonim coast there is an old wreck

well rusted

after 2 and a half days paddling its easy to rest

very easy

while others show signs of brain damage by overexposure to the sun.
Another successful trip, easier for seasoned paddlers and an amazing challenge for first timers. this year was a great paddle. See you again next time
