Going toward the light

.
Happy December solstice.
There is light at the end of the winter tunnel, and now we start moving to longer days, slowly slowly.
Yay!


Grandson Eyal climbs up the challenging slide the hard way . . .


and slides back down with glee!


The long snaky tube slide is in Rabin Park in Meitar.
The park is at the bottom of a wadi.
Normally the stream bed is dry but in last week's stormy days, water was running through half of it.
Rain water run-off is channeled down from the neighborhoods that are above the wadi, and then flows out into the desert.

I do not see winter as a tunnel: I see most of summer as a frying pan.

VP, I just wish we could have the light (the late-ending days) of summer while it is still cool winter.

I wholeheartedly agree with VP. I love winter and we're finally in winter. And I adore the first shot.

Hooray for brighter days! We know how to appreciate it here in the north. We still have storms and bad weather, but brighter days are on the way and we never lack water as you often do in the desert.

Hope you have a wonderful Weekend Dina:-)

Shalom Dina, you caught some marvelous angles in that slide-tube with your grandson. He sure looks like he's enjoying himself.

I'm glad the grandkids are having a blast with you. I've noticed it's gotten really dark when we go to the Farmers Market at 6:00.

The first two shots are so cool!
