We had a lazy morning today, and only got up around noon and watched people on the Sdot-Yam beach do some water sports .  Actually we both got up quite often in the middle of the night to feed the baby, and since we're on vacation noon seems reasonable.  We decided to go to Tel-Aviv - Jafa, and since it took us a pretty long time to drive there, we managed to do a bit of the Tel-Aviv boardwalk and some of the old city of Jaffa.

Jaffa is where the prophet Jonah hails from (remember, the story with the whale?), and where the Andromeda Rock resides.  Andromeda was a Greek mythological figure who was chained to a rock to be sacrificed to a sea monster for her mother's bragging; she was then saved from death by Perseus, whom she later married ( If you are a child of the 80's, this story was featured prominently in the movie "Clash of the Titans", with Harry Hemlin as Perseus and Judi Bowker as Andromeda).

We spend the majority of the time in Jaffa, eating Shawarma in Jaffa Shawarma (across the street from the famous Abulafia Bakery), walking around the touristy area and the old city.

< Anecdote> 
We saw a bride and groom taking their wedding pictures with a professional photographer, when they were walking down the street we walked to the edge, but Bella decided to walk behind the bride.  We called her over and got yelled by the photographer who wanted her in the picture.  So we sent her to the bride to say "mazal tov" which she did, the bride knelt and Bella gave her a kiss. 
As the bride got up we overheard her say "print this one".

We got back just in time to join the rest of the family for dinner at The Crusader Restaurant in Caesarea 's port.  The dinner was delicious and was added by the fact that we were on a terrace with the waves crushing below us.
