Harbour, Jbeil, Lebanon

Jbeil is also known by its historic name Byblos (from which comes the word Bible because papyrus, used to make paper, was exported through this little port).

If you feel like downloading, printing and framing it go right ahead Terry.
By the way, the sail to the left of centre is acting as a sunshade for the customers of Pepe's restaurant, a once very fashionable place with photos of the owner with various celebrities, filmstars et al, covering at least one wall.

I might have added that Jbeil/Byblos is thought to be the longest continuously inhabited town on Earth: 7,016 years. (Well, they were saying it was 7,000 years when I was there 16 years ago.)
