It has been awhile since I wrote last. The summer got the best of me. But we did have a great family vacation to the beach. One of the perks of living here is being so close to the beach. We did a three day trip to Kibbutz Nachsholim. They have simple but clean "tzimmirim", aka cottages, five minutes from the beach called Chof (beach) Dor where it is quite shallow and the waves are mild. We literally spent three days on the beach - building sand castles, swimming, grilling dinner on a disposable grill. For me it was three days of rest and relaxation (I even got through three books!).
