With two small kiddies and at times a rather impatient husband, I would normally have chosen the first option, but I could not resist to go to Akko known for being a relatively well preserved UNESCO heritage site and on the Mediterranean Sea.
So off we went. Half way there the kids started getting restless and the shriek fest commenced and the smoke was coming out of my husband's ears. Luckily the small ones love to sing, so their attention was diverted until we arrived at the quilt shop. While I was on my spree, the hubby and kids went to the beach which was conveniently a two minute drive away. It was rather windy, but the kids had a ball in the sand while I amused myself picking out fabric imported from the US, sewing paraphernalia and meeting some nice and friendly fellow quilters. The only one suffering was my wallet.
Afterwards we went to the old town and wandered on the fortress walls admiring the view over the sea. The harbor was lovely and picturesque. Finally we strolled the narrow streets within the citadel and soaking up the atmosphere.
