The Sea of DEATH

The beautiful Dead Sea- The mountains on the other shore are Jordan. It is a spectacular place. The water is like nothing you've ever felt. It is so saline that it is practically viscous. It feels like oil on your skin. Weird at first, but you get use to it. You really cannot go underwater because you're so bouyant. If you bend your legs underneath you, the water will hit a little below your sternum.

Daddy and Colin in the Shallows (Brian's enjoying a little Dead Sea mud therapy). The ground underfoot is solid crystalline salt.

The mud is supposed to have many curative properties. It felt like silky black clay. Colin was a little perplexed by Mommy's new look. Note his unwillingness to touch the dirty lady.

The salt made cool formations on the shore.

    I love the picture of the "dirty lady"--thanks for keeping us all informed of your adventures. Since we can't travel at the moment, we'll live our dreams through you.
