Sky and Sea from Rosh Hanikra

rosh hanikra
In the northwestern tip of Israel right at the border to Lebanon are some tall cliffs called Rosh Hanikra. We visited there early this summer. The photo is looking south from the cliffs at the Mediterranean sea. I hope to write more soon about Rosh Hanikra and about a ghost story associated with these beautiful high cliffs.

Ilana-Davita says

Very enticing. Did you swim there?
It is getting really hot here. Wish I could have a dip myself.

Leora says

No, we didn't go swimming there. There probably are beaches a little south of Rosh Hanikra. Plenty of beach at Nahariya, the town where we went a little later for lunch. Probably too dangerous to swim at the cliffs themselves.

Thank you for such a delightful sea and Sky View.. how I'd like to stand there a while and just listen to the waves.

Sorry for this copy and paste comment but I need to check all the links work , I also wanted you to know I've been here and seen your post... thank you for joining in with us this week I hope you enjoy the fun of it all.

A ghost story would be most apt for cliffs! Lovely photograph :)

Robin says

I love Rosh Hanikra. When we were there this spring a group of kayakers came right into the grotto!

Gemma says

This is beautiful! And a ghost story attached must make those cliffs even more magical!

Leora says

@frozen moments and anyone who wants to hear the ghost story...I hope you'll come back! I'll write it up on Sunday morning.

Thanks to all. So nice to have visitors from around the planet.

I live on the ocean, but I never tire of the views. This is a lovely expanse.

Beautiful. Looks so peaceful.

Hallo Leora,
wunderful sky and the cliffs from Israel.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for the Rudbeckia-comment.

Kathiespoettree says

The rippled water adds a textured contrast to the flat blue sky. Thanks for commenting on my blog! This is a nice Skywatch post. Now I'll go read the ghost story!
