I need to do lots of catching-up!  Two weekends ago, I went with three friends to Eilat for a weekend.  Eilat is a resort town in the southern-most point of Israel which sits on the Red Sea.  It was a shlep, a 5hr bus ride from Tel Aviv, but worth it for gorgeous weather (high 80s F) and a fun weekend.

We spent our time at the beaches--the reason to go to Eilat--which face crystal clear water and the desert of Jordan, a beautiful view from any angle.  I played mat-kot (paddle ball) at the beach, saw dolphins up-close at a special reef, and went scuba-diving!  There is amazing underwater life at Coral Beach, I remember seeing it when I went snorkeling with the family there 10 years ago. 

While a fun vacation spot, Eilat also hosts the trash (frechot and arsim) of Israel.  We were ripped off by cab-drivers and bombarded with quarter-cards for nightclubs.  A weekend was the perfect amount of time to spend there, and my friends and I had a great time!
