Sunset in the Jerusalem Hills

Just had to take this photo of the sunset.  Boy, I miss sunsets, I live on the North East side of the building and I miss seeing the sunset every day.  My next apartment just has got to be to the West!  Or I will have to look at this post everyday!!!  You can too!!

The Moon lights up the clouds!

On the way through Jerusalem, I happened to look up and I just had to take this picture!   The Moon lights up the night, in consolation for making itself smaller, on the 4th day of Creation.

Look up at the Moon once in a while so you don't miss the beauty of Nature!

A view of Herodian!

If you look carefully at this picture, I have made it extra large,. . . you can see an interesting flat top mountain. This is the archaeological site of Herodian.  Now we know that it was the burial place of King Herod, and he built this mountain.  I was there a long time ago before they did the digging.  A had a friend who had a cousin who had the keys to the site and we went inside the tunnels underneath .  There we found some remains of the Bar Kochva revolt, no we didn't move anything, really.  And then we went up into the mountain, saw the wonderful rooms that Herod built.

Two years ago, there was an exhibit at the Israel Museum showing everything that my friend and I saw 20 years ago! I said to my family, yup, this is what it looks like, when they showed the videos of the place before the digging began.

So today, when I was dropping my son off at Yeshiva, I was driving along and this view popped up.  I dropped him off and then on the way back, I stopped the car and popped this picture.  I think that on a day right after it rains it might be clearer.  I'll try.

So, a nice way to start the day,
Rachael
