A short vacation in Tiberius, by the Lake of Galilee

Hello dear readers,

We are back from our wonderful stay by the lake.  It was great to see the lake filled up, after a winter with bountiful rains.  The last few years were dry and the lake regressed leaving a wide shore.

It was not so good for finding shells.  Before, with the regression of the water,  quantities of shells were exposed. Now we have to dive to find them.

We stayed in  a boutique hotel which a little less than two centuries ago was a Scott church hospital run by missioners. Here are some photos of the hotel buildings built with basalt local stones.













                                       




I promised to show you some of the gifts I received, beginning  with my grand daughters gift.  A book.
One of the funniests. I'm reading and giggling all the way.  It was translated from Swedish to Hebrew.  Written by Jonas Jonasson and called "A one hundred years old man who climbed out of the window and disappeared". ( Lil, did you read it?) Here is a picture of the book's cover which speaks for itself.
The book was translated to many languages.


Will show more gifts tomorrow.

I wish you a wonderful weekend with my blessings

  4. Oh Drora, how gorgeous!! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely photos. It makes me want very much to travel, which someday hubby and I want to do. The only country I've really been to, besides Canada, which is quite close, has been Finland. We did have a brief stop over in Amsterdam but didn't have a chance to get out of the airport and see anything LOL! Thanks again for sharing.

  13. Love to see your wonderful photos of the places you are visiting. I have never been in your country myself.

    Drora: No I have not read that book. I checked it up and I can see that it is very, very popular. The book has gotten 5 stars everywhere in the book recensions, so I will borrow it in our Library tomorrow.
    Thank you so much for the tip. Funny to get a tip on a Swedish book from a friend in another country. I am smiling now! ..

    A big hug from
    Lil on Lilsdolls.
