Ancient Stone Walls – ‘Akká

My last post did not work at all.  Added 11 photos to it and they all loaded onto the page on top of each other!  So here is another go at showing some cool scenes from my first visit to  ‘Akká back in May.  ‘Akká is the ancient coastal city from about 2000 years before Christ.  It was a fortress built on the strategic point at the north of what is now Haifa Bay.  The history is therefore one full of war and occupation – its walls are thick and comprised of a crazy quilt of different size and shaped stones – new, old, very old and ancient!
