Kiryat Shmona Park

Today, I met a friend in Kiryat Shmona. We met in the city, and walked through one of the parks. The park was so wooded and secluded that I had thought we left the city, but we hadn't. It was a short, pleasant walk to the Azriel "River," and it made me feel like I was engulfed in nature. The creek itself was deep enough for there to be lots of tiny little fish. When we stopped at a water hole and hopped in, all the little fish came up to our feet and we got a free trip to one of those "fish spas" where the fish eat off the dead skin. It was pretty pleasant, as long as they stayed low. They tickled when they were on the calves. The water was very cool and refreshing, and I was completely calmed by the serene setting. There's not anything to do there, and the pool isn't big enough for a swim, but it was nice to take a dip. The hot walk back was made even more pleasant because I was still a little wet from jumping in. We walked through a well-manicured park with an old fort or armory of some sort, and then grabbed some good shakshuka at this little anarchist bar/coffee shop in the middle of town. It's a cute place that I recommend as a hangout spot. I wouldn't make a trip up just for the park or the coffee shop, but if you're looking for something to do while you're already here, it's a pleasant start to the day.
