Spot The Hat In Israel !!

Whew ! I have done so much since leaving my home in Spain, so today I have taken a day off, relaxing in the hotel lobby (with a member of staff vacuuming under my feet. OMG !!!). I slept well last night for a couple of hours between the helicopters, fireworks and gunfire (?) on the only access road to my hotel on the Mount Of Olives, Jerusalem AND I’ve just spilt coffee on my trouser lap. Maybe embarrassing when my 5 South African lady friends ask again if I need help with anything ! But, hey, I’m on holiday and I truly am enjoying it.


I don’t write a normal post, so my 6am start for Caesarea, Mount Carmel Haifa, Acre (Akko) and Rash Hanikra (Google them) where I took many “selfie” hat photos for the slideshow. Some photos do not have my hat in them. Can you spot which onesΒ  ?

Sorry I am slow in replying to your comments but I will get around to it and visiting 250 new posts in my Inbox. OMG. I need a holiday !!


So, what have you been up to while I have been a lazy tourist in Israel ?

    • Hey Lottie, I’m a blogaholic ! How can I desert you & all my friends and leave them Ralphless for weeks on end. OR maybe you don’t want me to comment to give you a break πŸ˜‰ lol Ralph xox ❀
      PS Don't be jealous as I don't like green women πŸ˜‰


    • Hi Drake πŸ˜€ Seven ! You win ! The prize is the pink hat……if you can get it off her πŸ˜‰ Ralph πŸ˜€


      • I don’t know !! I think the pink hat would match your white eyes, black feathers and yellow beak, Drake !! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€


  3. :)) Lucky hat to travel that far and now becomes the star of your post! Enjoy your day Ralph and hope you have a good rest after waking up so early!


    • Hi Indah πŸ˜€ The hat is becoming a diva with all the attention plus signing autographs and now wants its own hotel room. I had a walk today. Am off to Galilee tomorrow. Ralph xox ❀


  4. It must be contagious. Your head spin also makes my head spins πŸ™‚ I am concern now that you met some monks. Please be kind to them πŸ™‚


    • Hi YC πŸ˜€ There’s nothing like a good head spin to start the day !! πŸ˜‰ The monks were okay, it was the nuns I met on my walk this morning that I was kind to. Ralph πŸ˜€


    • Hi Ute πŸ˜€ You can say that again !! Tiring, but well worth the visit. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello Shey πŸ˜€ Of course you have ! I would never expect anything less of you πŸ˜€ Ralph xox ❀


  5. I really enjoyed the perspective! It made me feel like I was there, because since I’m on the petite side, someone’s head is usually in my way. πŸ˜‰


    • Hi Rene πŸ˜€ LOL So it’s all my fault blocking your view of these photos with my big head and hat !! I must be more careful where I stand when you are nearby πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox ❀


      • No, if I was really there, I would be next to you doing selfies together, and both our heads would block someone else’s view. LOL. xoxo


      • There you go then ! Our fiendish plan of view blocking will work. I just know it !! xox


      • Oh, and seriously, speaking from a photographer’s point-of-view, I really did like your perspective. I found it to have an artistic flair, and it fit your game so well. πŸ™‚


      • Seriously ! Are you serious ? If so, I will take it as a compliment *faint* ❀


  6. Celebrating the 4th of July here in the US. And noting the contrast between the ideals of our founding fathers and the crazy government we too often have now.


    • Happy 4th of July Georgia ! I do understand and hope change for the better comes about sooner than later. Ralph xox ❀


  7. Thanks for checking in! You shouldn’t worry about posting while on vacay, enjoy! And, oh, thanks for the memories. I took the same tour as you many moons ago. I hope you are wearing comfortable shoes, lol. ❀


    • Hi Debby πŸ˜€ I am glad it brought back memories. This is my first time here, but I was sensible enough to wear walking boots. Even so, my feet cooked due to the heat on the roads and paving stones. Still a week to go ! OMG ! lol Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Sheri πŸ˜€ I did enjoy Caesarea and the sea. Such a refreshing wind as I watched my hat bowl along trying to reach Lebanon. Thanks for you input my friend. Big hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  8. Awesome commentary, MFR. What interesting places you’ve been! I’d love to hear some of the guide’s blah, blah, blah in another post. πŸ™‚


    • Hi MVBF Marsha πŸ˜€ Thank you. It has been fun. I am staying here tomorrow night by the Dead Sea then back to the hotel for the rest of my stay in Jerusalem.
      No way ! The tour guides didn’t stop !!
      Ralph xox ❀


  9. First I would like to say, during all the trip you made some beautiful photos and my compliments for them, I really would love to visit Israel, it have to be so exciting ! πŸ™‚ You look very cool with your hat and it’s almost in all of your photos, are you sure you didn’t arrange a publicity contract with someone ??? πŸ™‚ Wishing you a very lovely evening and kisses from Italy ! Xxx


  10. Looking good in that hat Ralph πŸ™‚
    Love your Ralph selfies & comments!
    Your comment on the old ruins cracked me up. πŸ˜†
    xx Saludos y Abrazos xx


    • Hi RoSy πŸ˜€ Thank you so much. I can’t publish the best selfies πŸ˜‰ lol
      Big hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  11. Love, love & love the slideshow!! What a hat …er I mean hoot. Wat a hoot! xox ❀


    • Hello Resa my friend πŸ˜€ What a hoot hot head in a hat slideshow you mean ? Or maybe a hot hoot head in a hat ? Now there’s a idea for a dress ! But I refuse to model it !! πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox ❀


      • Well that’s a hoot hat head!
        A hat gown is a possible hottie, however, I’ll have to think about any gown you won’t model. xo ❀
