Bay of Jounieh and Harissa, Lebanon

This is a photograph of the Bay of Jounieh and Harissa, "Our Lady of Lebanon". I took this photograph one Spring evening while on board a ship bound to Cyprus, with the sun setting behind me. That was the last time I saw Lebanon, land of the Phoenicians. The Basilica of the Blessed Virgin, Our Lady of Lebanon/Harissa, can be viewed on top of the mount and a Greek Catholic Byzantine Basilica on the right.

To view photographs taken in the mountain, please follow these links looking down from home, the way Home, the street were I rode my bike, the neighborhood, my home , my grandparent/uncle's Hajjar Hotel (all five photographs were provided by kind courtesy of my friend, Nakhle Hajjar.)
