This is amazing. The entire country stops for the siren to remember Israel’s fallen soldiers. This is the view from the Netanya promenade.
Day Siren: Grace’s View
Grace realized her camera also has video capabilities, so she filmed the moment of silence as well.
Afterwards, Grace turns her camera on me. I wasn’t expecting it and was still experiencing a bit of an emotional moment at the end of the siren.
Netanya Beach 1
The promenade leads to the Mediterranean Sea — this is the view from the cliffs.
Netanya Beach 2
Here we are in the water.
Soldier’s Rememberance Day and Israeli Independence Day are like one long bi-polar holiday. At sundown, when Remeberance Day ends, Independence Day begins. Netanya is getting ready for the celebrations.
This is the ampitheater I used to hang out at when I was a child, visiting my grandparents in Netanya.
