  • Very well suited for many activities. Birthday. Shashlyh. Simply sit on the beach. From a romantic evening to a noisy birthday. You can stay overnight

  • Yesterday I went to ancient park with three grandchildren in class a day off from school. We went through the Canaanite gate along the cliff path to the beach. Tzpinoo way to the sea and the city. To me were salty and tzaniinim pottery. In the calm and silence were alone on the beach. Dropping stones and pottery sherds. The kids tried. Without great success. Found shells and seashells. Of course the sound getting wet. Eliminated almost 10 a. On the way back through the Park spread and large lawns running and his companion catches. Also went to the bathroom. Clean. We returned to the car, tired but satisfied. One thing was missing from the previous visit. Games for children. There used to be. Isn't this ancient Park picnics. But Kim added, children and adult release on or just sitting together.
