Left Israel this morning. Here are a few final glimpses.
From the day Austin and I did an adventure walk on Mount Carmel:
A cactus with fruit. Austin picked one off the ground to taste it – and it squirted all over the left sleeve of my sweater. He says it was sweet and tart.
A surprise on the sidewalk. I thought this snake had an injured head, but those are its markings.
I loved the olive trees. Every tree is so distinctive – feels as if I could greet each one by name.
There were so many ripe olives!
All over the ground under the trees. I pulled an Austin and tasted one. Yuck! Very sharp and bitter! How on earth are these turned edible?
And here’s a bit of Merry Christmas from Haifa:
for my secular friends
And for the more devout – with you-know-who .
Off to London.
Happy week, Everybody 😊
