|The jetty at the site of the port of Caesarea -- founded by the Romans, used in the middle ages and the Crusader era. After a|
long period of disuse it was restored in the 19th century and is now an archaeology park.

|This giant foot is one of the artifacts we always remember from past visits.|
Our plane back to the US leaves tonight just after midnight. We fit in one more expedition: to the Roman port Caesarea, now a vast archaeology site. We also looked for the Bird Mosaic, which was the floor of an elegant Roman house perched above the port, now in a city park. It includes a number of recognizable birds, as well as various animals, which I will try to identify for a future post when I get home.
