This is not my favorite Tel Aviv beach. In summer time it gets really crowded, perhaps due to the proximity of large parking lots of Tel Aviv port. It's quite small, being tucked between the port and the fenced segregated beach (that has separate bathing days for men and women). But it's the one most close to my home, and this is where I ventured Friday morning.
Do you know this feeling when you happen to be one of the first to arrive someplace that just have been opened? It's though the place had been opened - or even maybe created! - just for you. This is what I felt that Friday morning on the beach. The staff of the beach cafe had just started arranging the small low tables and the plastic yellow chairs on the sand. The sand was still so fresh, almost unmarked with tracks. Everything was so new, recent, inviting. And it was so great to open a book, and glance at the grayish winter sea and sky, and recall what is looked like when it was summer.
