Yom Haatzmaut in Herzelia

On Yom Haatzmaut we went to Herzelia to see the boat show. All the boats leave the harbor in a long line, with their Israeli flags waving, and then some Navy boats join and blow their horns. It is really a beautiful sight to see so many boats at the same time! The kids enjoyed it despite the warm weather and the long walk down the pier to the viewing location. Here are some pictures I took along the way.
The first thing we saw was these airplanes flying in formation. Maybe they were flying to the Tel Aviv air show...
I loved this boat with the star on its sail. You can also see a flair up in the sky.
That is one of the Navy boats in the distance.
This couple cracked me up. You get to see some real characters on a beach!
Here you can see the long line of boats that has left the harbor.
These are the boats as they leave the harbor.
Here are some Navy soldiers watching the show.

And this guy was just minding his own business, ignoring the whole show!

On the way home we saw some airplanes flying in loops, from the Tel Aviv air show.

All in all it was a nice morning, and it was nice to do something with the Israeli masses on such a day. Of course we had the traditional bbq in the afternoon as well, with family, which was fun too!

Thanks for looking!
