Here are some pictures from out family day trip yesterday. We went up the Carmel mountain to the Carmelite monastery and then to the ruins of the ancient Roman city of Zipori. It was very interested, Zipori has some of the best preserved Roman mosaics and you can actually walk down the main street and into the villas and see the mosaic floors.

Hubby and Ron in front of the Carmelite Monastery -


The view from the roof of the monastery (it was a cloudy day and we could see clouds from up there)


The statue of Elijah the prophet that stands by the monastery. The monastery is there as this is where Elijah supposedly went up to heaven.


That's all of us by the monastery (little Dan is actually there under the blanket I'm carrying )


Hubby and Ron walking inside the Roman villas


One of the many mosaics -


The view from Zipori

Anne:

Hubby is such a cutie-pie! You can post pics of him anytime!

I love history. You are fortunate to live in a place where history is a day-trip. For me, it's Disney World.

Thanks for posting them. I'm afraid I'll never get to see Israel, so at least I can get an idea of it here.

I'm glad you like the pictures everyone! Hey, it's a small world - maybe some of you will get around to visiting here. It's not as dangerous as it seems from outside and I promise special treatment for TCS forum members
