Photographer's Note

Walking about 600m north of the Alexander-river estuary, ( the WS #1 attached), on an untouched seashore strip, we came to yet another ancient settlement from the time of the Phoenicians.
Like places along Israel coastal-plains, as posted before, Palmachim ancient port and the remains of Apolonia port, this is the remains of Tel-Girit.
Not much known about the place, probably was a small villa on a barrow, rather than a stronghold or a port.
Other known places from 3000BC, the Bronze-era till 1200BC, are Cesarea and Acre in Israel, and Tzor in Lebanon.
Transparent water, a rock's reef and many marine species living here, among them the sea-turtles.
A natural harbor, nowadays local small port of Michmoret, is just north and around this cliff.
WS #2 show the barrow on another POV, looking NW.
WS#3 show the transparent water from the top of the barrow, view SW.
