Sunrise at Bahjí 3

Walked out behind the Mansion into the unfinished sections of the garden to find these glowing morning sunlight views of the east side of the building.

Sunrise at Bahjí 2

The shrine was in shadow when we first arrived and after prayers walked around the gardens finding little spots of early morning rosy sunshine patches.

Dawn at Bahjí

This morning found me piling out of bed at 4:45am to get ready for a sherut ride out to Bahjí just north of ‘Akká.  The normal hour drive in traffic is only about thirty minutes on a quiet Shabat Saturday morning.  The air was cold waiting for the Sherut on Hatzionut Avenue at 6am and even colder (about 45 degrees) once we got out at Bahjí.  At 6:45 the sun had just barely risen and the rosy colour was visible above the trees.
