To end the day our brave 13 comprising CAARI 2012, boarded a double masted schooner named the Orionia, in the Eilat marina, and sailed into the setting Wednesday sun, heading south viewing the beautiful mountains of Edom, Midyan and the Eilat mountains in the setting sun. An open bar and Bar-B-Qued dinner help end another exciting day touring the many projects of JNF. Here we see some of the hardier participants posing on the Orionia deck. The setting sun halo can be seen in the backgound. The second photo shows Captain Ronen and the City of Eilat and mountains of Edom in the background as we had out to sea.
