In Haifa, the Dado beach promenade is often bustling with activity with swimmers, surfers, those exercising and other pastimes.
During the winter months there can be days with little activity and the following photos are representative of the hardy individuals that frequent the beach irrespective of the weather.
|A cafe that is typically full of patrons, on this cold day has|
no-one ready to sit outside
|The backgammon regulars are always present irrespective|
of the weather
|And if the weather is really bad, there is always a corner|
where the open areas can be covered with cardboard
against the weather.
|Even the cats have to be patient waiting for tidbits from the|
rare number of brave souls prepared to sit outside, well
wrapped of course.
|No waves in sight!!|
|Time to go home.|
