Jaffo Port, Israel – June 8 – Part 1


On Sunday we headed to Tel Aviv to be tourists. We started our day touring the ancient port of Jaffo.

The view started in the parking lot with murals.

We are right by the water, and there were no seagulls! Not many birds at all, it was a bit odd. This raucous fellow was one of the only birds I got on camera.

It was interesting to walk along the docks.

At least there was this magnificent specimen!

One of the highly visible structures of this Port is the lighthouse.

Its like the Life of Brian come to life here. I keep thinking some old man or woman will throw open the shutters and say something incomprehensible!

Now it is time to climb.

On the way up there were a lot of interesting sites and doorways to see.

Its a lot of walking up very uneven stairs.

The walk to the top was totally worth the effort!

Church clock tower.

Next we explored the area around the top of Port Jaffo….
