You’ve probably gathered by now that I have been to Israel and back. Two weeks in The Land. In the glorious sunshine. Soaking up the warmth. I have been three times now. (Click here and here to see what happened before). This time we had promised ourselves a more leisurely holiday. Time to look and think and inwardly digest. Did we achieve this? I’m not sure, but perhaps when I look back after these posts I will be able to say ‘YES, that was good!’
We started our time away in Tel Aviv staying at Beit Immanuel. The House of God with us. This used to be Sir Peter Ustinov’s great grandfather’s property and the garden that is still there dates from the 1870s. Including this Banyan Tree!
A gentle stroll on our first night to see the sea – which I love – and all the lights. Breath taking.
Now Galilee is a different world. So calm and peaceful. Here we stayed at Beit Bracha. The House of Blessings. On the way a view over Haifa …
And our first view over the Galilee from our guest house that night was the beautiful moon! Really red/orange. Remember? On the next day we were sailed away, treated to a display of casting a net and a gentle roll to the boat.
