The Oasis of Ein Gedi

On the way back to Jerusalem from Masada, we stopped at the oasis of Ein Gedi on the Dead Sea.  It was the perfect end to a wonderful day.

  1. Herzlichen Dank für die schönen Bilder. Ich verbrachte 1964 als Beatnik etwa 10 Tage in den alten Originalbaracken ganz hinten in Ein Gedi. Dieser Kibbuz respektive heute Touristenoase sah damals an der dead sea noch anders aus. Ich wünsche Dir Gottes Segen. Ernst

    • Vielen Dank für Ihre liebe Nachricht, lieber Ernst. Bei meinem Besuch im Mai 2008 war es umwerfend schön. Aber jetzt hat es sich wieder geändert. Das Tote Meer ist stark zurückgegangen und es gibt nicht mehr viel von einer Oase. Hoffe ihr habt ein gesegnetes Wochenende.
      Thank you very much for your lovely message, dear Ernst. It was stunningly beautiful when I visited in May 2008. But now it’s changed again. The Dead Sea has receded considerably and there’s not much of an oasis now. Hope you’re having a blessed weekend.

  2. This is SO different from your usual posts! I’ll have to come back to see more of your adventure but I’m still in the Azores right now. Loving it! 🙂 🙂

    • Thank you, Jo. I decided to widen out my blog, so changed the name from Welcome to Wales to Welcome to my World. That gives me much more scope now. Have a great holiday 💙

  3. Thanks for your like of my post, “Memorial Day – “Lest We Forget;” you are very kind.

  4. The colour of the water is absolutely beautiful and I can only imagine how warm the sand is 😀

  5. A special place which looks amazing!

  6. A profound journey! Thank you for sharing these special moments. 💛💛💛

  7. Oh goodness the beach is darker sand. So interesting beautiful photos. ❤

  8. Beautiful!
