The Garden is getting dressed up for Easter!
Jerusalem is always a fun place during holiday celebrations...
In the midst of a very busy season, we did have the opportunity to get away to Eilat for a few days to rest. On the way down through the Negev, we stopped off at David Ben-Gurion's tomb. Incredible views!!!
Jews, when visiting the tomb of a loved one, instead
leaving flowers leave a "Stone of Remembrance."
A great idea, if you forgot to bring flowers, there
are always stones around!
Now, the view is perfect!
There were a number of Ibex in the memorial park.
