Israel - Bahai Gardens, Haifa

We had a short visit to Bahai Gardens, it was the end of our day, the light was about to fade and we were all tired.  The gardens are terraced on the slope of Mount Carmel and look out toward the sea.  The golden dome, a shrine and resting place of a prophet, is the gardens focal point.

The drive to and through the winding hilly streets of Haifa seemed interesting enough for us at that time.  We were content to reflect on the remarkable events of the day! We stood atop the hill, gazing over the dome and on into the deep blue of the Mediterranean harbour.   

There was a drive ahead and we were more than ready to get going to our lodging.
