The past 24 hours have been one of the most incredible days of my life! On Saturday evening we went down and got into the Dead Sea. I was amazed at how bouyant you truly are! There is a real art to getting in the water. You slowly walk out into the water, crouch/sit down and simply allow your body to float. Immediately your legs and feet pop up out of the water! It was so neat! The water this time of year is actually like getting into a hot tub in some areas - especially the shallow ones. I estimate the temperature to be around 100 degrees.
Our first visit we did not find any Dead Sea Mud! I was frantic! When we went in to eat dinner, I stopped at the front desk to ask them - "Where's the Mud!?" I explained I had studied their Dead Sea for a decade now and it was not acceptable The Mud Queen™ had arrived and there was no mud to play in! (I said this in a joking manner of course!) The attendant laughed and agreed with me! He told me that about only 15 meters on the other side of the beach was a an area with mud! I was so thrilled I almost squealed with delight! Six of us got into swim suits and headed down to the Dead Sea. We all slathered on the mud from from head to toe. - hair included! It was an awesome experience to be in the Dead Sea, totally covered in hot mud and have a full moon shining down on the Dead Sea. It just doesn't get much better than that!
Today we headed back out the Dead Sea and did more full body treatments on the shore line - then we went to the spa and had our full body spa treatments at the spa.
I'm beyond exhausted now and will have to post more tomorrow.
Luv & Hugs!!!
