A Sweet Day Trip

The day was dawning.  The view from our window was soft and misty.
 By 10:30 we were on the road.  On our way to Ofakim, a small development town in the south.  Not much time to stop and take pictures, just speeding along. I loved these reeds, growing wild on the side of the road.

 We were going to Ofakim, but on the way we had an important stop to make...the Ben & Jerry's outlet store. 
 All the signs are in Hebrew and English.
 Welcome to the store!  Moo!
 Lots of cow-y picnic tables out front.  You and the kids can sit and enjoy your ice cream outside.
 So many choices!  What should we get?  Yes, we ended up buying 8 pints.
 A sign near the checkout.
 The salesgirl.  She was so shy and I had to convince her to smile for the picture.

What a fun place to go to. I didn't know it was there.

I'll have to make a day trip just for the nostalgia of being in Ben & Jerry's... never mind all the flavors to choose from!
