OCT 26: The DEAD SEA is located on the lowest point on earth at over 1,300 feet below sea level, has a very high salt content with 33.7% salinity, it's one of the world's saltiest seas, so it's also known as "Sea of Salt."  It's 42 miles long and 11 miles wide, and borders both Jordan and Israel.  This was my third visit to this lowest point on earth; having walked into it's salty water all three times.  Knowing that there are pebbles before it becomes sandy when walking into the water, I walked in with my sox on that I threw out on the ship.   I have very tender feet!  

Two in our group had their swimming trunks on to float in the water.  

After their dip in the salty sea, we all sat in the outside cafe and had some drinks.   Some purchased lotions and soaps made from the Dead Sea water.  It's supposed to have curative powers.  

My roommate and I had our dinner at Jacques.   It was delicious!~
