The birthday boy gets a weekend off

What a nice way to spend my birthday!

My Father-in-law is watching the kids and the dog this weekend and Zahava and I are off to a nice hotel in Zichron Yaacov, a beautiful little community overlooking the Mediterranean that is home to one of Israel's largest and best known wineries.

I'm sure I'll have stuff to share next week, but for now you'll have to settle for a link to a story from my last visit to Zichron that still hits me right in the heart.

You can read it here.  (3 tissue warning!)

Shabbat Shalom.

Enjoy Zichron.
Just below it on the coast, Kibbutz Maagan Michael has a fabulous bird sanctuary (the fish ponds attract migrating birds) well worth visiting. It is probably the wrong time of year but the storks put on a particularly amazing show of arial acrobatics. The pelicans are pretty amazing too.
