Transporter on the bridge

.
We talked before about the now-elegant old Scots Hotel in Tiberias here and here..
Their footbridge allows guests to cross above the busy street and go down to the hotel swimming pool.
The view from the bridge is to the Sea of Galilee. Beyond the lake, the Golan Heights.
.
I love the lighting in the floor of the wooden bridge.

If my kids were there at the Scots Hotel, each of us could stand over a blue light and say "Beam me up, Scotty!"
.
Hope this makes Louis into la vache qui rit for his Sunday Bridges meme.
Join us, it's fun!

Beam me up, indeed! Nice contribution to the bridge series, Dina!

Very cool bridge. I never realized the Scots Hotel had a pool. The one in Jerusalem is a bit spartan, to say the least (but lovely).

I love the view from the bridge too. And your "Beam me up, Scotty" just made my day. :)

I like that "beam me Scotty" ...:D Star Trek, isn't it?

It's not every bridge you cross that offers a view of the Sea of Galilee. So special.

VP said...

A good idea and a nice point of view, I guess...

You've found more! The view on the sea is fantastic!

Francisca said...

Nice! The tiny glimpse of the water view piques my curiosity.

Heh... beam me up. That definitely made me chuckle! What a view indeed. Like a runway for an airplane to land... those pretty blue lights are very attractive. Thanks so much for coming by my blog when you do, I really do appreciate it, my friend.
Hugs♥

Impressive! Thanks Dina for sharing your bridge and hotel!

I love this post because not only is the footbridge very pretty, but the way you write about going down to the Sea of Galilee so casually makes me giggle a bit. I was just reading about the place in the Bible at church yesterday ;-)

I love your views of places most of us only ever hear about.

JM said...

Pretty cool crossing a bridge to go for a swim! :-)

Well, Dina, «Louis» was going to write what Chuck has already written! So, he'll write it again because he appreciates your contribution to Sunday Bridges!

Good to have lights, so we don't fall off.
