  1. Oh, that whale is one of my favourite sculptures in Jaffa. We usually park our car near then when we visit ;-)

  6. Exciting shots, I love the whale and the imagination it sparks. I met someone who was moving back to Tel Aviv and very excited to be doing so.

  9. I'm curious about why they took to the story of Jonah and the Whale? IS there a story behind the statue?

    1. Yes, Lydia. See the book of Jonah, in the Old Testament. The story is set in Jaffa. It's only four short chapters long and very easy to read.

  17. It's not a city we hear much about. Don't know why - perhaps in the shadow of Tel Aviv?
