It’s hard to imagine a more rewarding feature on a hike than a mid-trail beach stop.
We saw spear fisherman and sailboats. Birds soared above, looping back every so often to catch a sea breeze.
As we entered, an old archway greeted us, framing the turquoise and purple sea just beyond.
We left King Herod’s city through the arches, satisfied that we had learned a bit more about Israel’s rich and fascinating history.
Old stone bridges stand covered in trailing ivy, the archways underneath revealing pools of sunlight reflected in the water.
