Final Israel Post
For those of you reading all these Israel posts so far, bravo! I'm here to share one final set of photos with you!
We spent a beautiful day at Ceasaria, which is an old Roman port city full of ruins and art galleries and beautiful water. I visited it years ago, and went with Steve again on this trip. It's a bit out of the way, but it's a beautiful place.
The scenery is absolutely stunning.
After touring the area, we sat down to eat lunch at a beautiful indoor/outdoor cafe near the water. AND IT WAS KOSHER. Gotta love Israel:) We got one of my favorite meals there, which was hot, crusty bread with maybe 15 different jams, olives, cheeses, and spreads. Makes me hungry just thinking about it.
On our way out of town, we stopped at a juice stand. I LOVE the juice stands in Israel. They usually have every random fruit you can imagine (I can't even identify the ones in the photo below!) even though they work out of a little cart. They usually keep oranges and grapefruits refrigerated so you can have a cool drink (perfect for a hot day!).
And speaking of fruit, little E became OBSESSED with peaches on our trip. She ate a full one every day, which took about an hour and caused a huge mess but was great for her and fun for us to watch!
As a random aside, she wore the most adorable strawberry swimsuit (although she was too scared to actually swim!)
E and I also enjoyed a coffee date!
With a lot of people watching:)
Before leaving town, we stopped at the Kotel to say goodbye. So much has changed since my last visit to Israel 7 years ago, and I wonder how much will change before I can get back again.
It was a beautiful time and a beautiful trip. Can't wait to go back again.
What is YOUR dream trip?
