A photojournal of the Wooster Square neighborhood in New Haven, Connecticut. And, occasionally a photo of New Haven, of course, of course.

Not Wooster Square....But

beautiful Tel Aviv sitting on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Tel Aviv is a young city that was founded in 1909 during the Ottoman Empire. It was in 1948, the founding of the State of Israel, when it really took off and established itself. Tel Aviv is known for it's beautiful sandy beaches and resort town feel with hotels, cafes and lots of water sport activity. There's a lot of Bauhaus architectural influence and is a very secular city.Over all the weather on our trip ranged from sunny days, to rainy days, and a morning of hail. Yeah, pretty miserable most of the time but we kept on.
These tracks remind me of hermit crabs but I didn't see any around. Can you take a guess? I thought they were interesting, they were the only two on the beach.
Kids getting ready to take out a boat. Check back soon, every day I will post three or more photos of the ten day trip.


  1. Nice how you captured the spirit of Tel Aviv without all the touristy shots.
    The sand marks look like two angels ascending. Maybe a sign to you?

  2. Ahh, yes they do look like angels ascending. I think it was a sign.
