October Holiday

Tim and Lois, my brother and sister-in-law, have been on their travels again, visiting various places including Italy and Israel.  As usual, they took hundreds of photos, and I've posted a small selection of them below - with captions by Tim.

Click on the photos to enlarge them and bring up the slide show.

Port building at Naples. Filled with plenty of decent souvenir shops,
and security for ship-bound tourists

Tourist boat, Naples. There are many ferries/boats
going to lots of interesting destinations

Some of our little tour group,
outside the Jaffa gate, Jerusalem

Part of the west side of old Jerusalem; the wall will be
500 years old in roughly twenty years

Part of the Kotel (western, or wailing wall),
and Temple Mount behind

Us in the Jewish quarter of old Jerusalem,
the western wall plaza in the background
