The day started off innocently enough ... If you count waking up late because your phone thinks your in VA and you don't think to compensate by setting the alarm time to 7 hours earlier as innocent, but I digress. Quickly got dressed, davened brachos, and got to the dining room for breakfast. Which was super nice, by the way.
I had a great time in the wading pool with the little girls. Turns out that their website was totally wrong. The appointment wasn't for an hour. It was for two hours. Worked out perfectly in the end. Tami picked me and the girls up, and then we went to get the snorkeling crew. I ran in to get them, and was shocked by what I saw. There was this whole big set up there. You can sit on the beach, touch the dolphins if they come close on the dock and more. I thought it was this dinky little hole in the wall joint with rocks instead of sand. After Shauly got the information for getting the pictures, we ran out onto the dock. Right as we got there, a dolphin surfaced, sorta saying HI to me. We went to one of the platforms, but no other dolphins seemed interested in showing up. We had to get back to the car, so we left. On the way out, I noticed a ton of jellyfish. Shauly tells me, they don't sting. He then bends over and touches one. Oh cool, I'm gonna try. As I'm leaning over he says, I'm not fishing your shaitel out of the water if it falls in. Lol, no pun intended, right? So I did it. I poked at one and screamed. I'm such a girl, right? It didn't feel like jelly. It felt more like wet rubber. Tami had told me that there was this guy there who pulled one out of the water and was playing with it before when she was there. So then it all made sense.
We made it back to Yerushalayim early, before 8. So we have some time to recoup before our trip tomorrow. We decided to do the Lag B'omer trip tomorrow to avoid the traffic up North. Plus, it means we will be in Yerushalayim for Lag B'omer. There are so many activities here it's hard to choose which to do. There is free museum day. I might switch the Israel Museum to that day, since it will be a huge savings. I also want to see if we can go to the Jewish Music Museum.
There's still time for Moshiach to arrive, and we can all spend Lag B'omer together.
