The focus is the soaring height of the historical architecture and while there are crowds of people, deep in their individual prayers, they are connected in their faith and focus on the Western Wall of the 2nd temple in Jerusalem.  The second temple was finished in 516 BC and stands as a testament to religious freedom and survival for over 2,500 years.

From excavations in the Jewish Quarter, walkways and columns, as well as stalls and other evidence of daily life, were discovered dating back to the 6th century AD.  The “Cardo” was the main street in ancient Roman cities.  The Cardo still stands as a piece of history where people can see what architecture and life was like historically.  The history and ancient buildings draw in the eye as people walk by on cobblestones thousands of years old.

Jerusalem stands as the home and birthplace for three religions.  It welcomes all pilgrims and those who seek to appreciate its beauty and historical significance.

The Machane Yehuda market in Jerusalem, Israel is a treasure trove of teas, candies, spices, breads, fruit, and vegetables.  The brilliant colors and expansive trove of choices awakens the senses and the breadth of options opens to the excitement of cooking possibilities.

Open market stalls beckon shoppers to luxuriate and sample the many varietals.  Custom mixes to adorn salads and sweeten teas embrace all ethnicities and cultures.

Looking back at my many photos, how I wish I could amble there once again! The privilege to select the choicest and freshest dried fruits, nuts, and seasonings is sorely missed.

Rosh HaNikra is located at the northern most tip of Israel, and the Lebanon border, where the land meets the vast Mediterranean Sea.

Time, rain, minerals in the earth and rock, sunlight and heat, and the steady flow of the Mediterranean Sea against rocks and cliffs have turned this natural environment into a place of beauty and peace. Over 3,500 years of nature’s literally “going with the flow” has produced exquisite grottoes.

It was 74 degrees F (appx 25 degrees C) in the middle of December.  As it was below zero back in North America, it was literally a day at the beach and a time to linger and ponder the wonder of creation.  IMG_0642
