Shabbot in Caesarea

Wow. This place was… just… wow. Stace says it’s his favorite touristy place on Earth. I’ve seen some pretty amazing things: sunrise on Haleakala, the cliffs of Dover. This place is so striking with the waves crashing up against the port and the ancient Roman stones just begging to be climbed by little boys. Liam obliged them.

We spent a wonderful day here with our friends Bob and Fara. We tried to outrun a storm that blew in from the Med. It was much faster than we were. I’m learning that rain here means 20 minutes of deluge then back to sun again. It reminded me of the Summer thunderstorms we’d have in Kentucky, sans thunder. After a wonderful lunch at Hametzuda we continued exploring.

You could spend an entire day here. It’s a great place to bring a picnic and the kids just love the climbing. There are great restaurants, galleries and shops, and Bella Gelato has the most artful and delicious gelato I’ve ever seen. Cat Quarter has great little shops including Danon which sells Israeli made jewelry. Cats are everywhere here. They are cared for by the crazy cat lady who owns the ice cream shop.

Our next visit will be for dinner at Helena (where Stace says he’s had two of his top ten meals ever) to watch the sun set over the port. That will be a date night.

    Try Port Cafe as well. It’s my favorite of all the restaurants there. 🙂
