Eileen’s grandson Lahav slept over at the house on Wednesday evening and then spent the next day with us. We took a ride to Apolonnia, a crusader city and fortress overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
Lahav and Eileen seemed to be having a good time on the beach.
Just south of Apolonnia is the Sidna Ali Mosque. It has served as a place of worship for Muslims since the 11th century. In the courtyard is a shrine of Ali Ibn Ali, a holy man and sultan, thought to be a descendant of Mohammed.
After our walk on the beach we headed for lunch at Park Raanana. It’s a tough life we live, but someone’s got to do it.
This is a very special time of the year for everyone. We are very lucky that we are able to spend it together here in Israel. We wish everyone a wonderful holiday and a Happy & Healthy New Year.
“GO IN PEACE!”
