Israel's columns

Ceasarea’s columns

While visiting Ceasarea (see former posts Ceasarea, Roman Amphitheater and Roman Aqueduct), I turned to the south and noticed the massive columns of an electrical power plant framed by the two Roman columns.  This is Israel’s largest power plant, located on the Mediterranean Sea about 50 miles north of Tel Aviv.

The columns of Ceasarea have been standing for 2,000 years, and I couldn’t stop wondering how this scene might change over the next two millenium.  How many columns will be visible from this spot in 4015?   I’d put my money on the Roman columns.

Thought for the Day:  Ancient Rome declined because it had a Senate; now, what’s going to happen to us with both a House and Senate?   Will Rogers
