We really wanted to check #soukelakl festival in Zouk which was @ 7:00 pm...thus our plan should be around that area!!
& so it was!!!
We managed to pull out a "FULL, BUSY, FUN, EDUCATIONAL, & EXEPTIONAL Family Day Out" ALL over Keserwan Area...Here's how!!
We reached Harrisa @ 1:00 pm. Weather was perfect, kids already napped in the car, and we were hungry.. Eating was a Must!! We wanted to try this Lebanese restaurant we heard a lot about, and so we headed to Restaurant Laura & it was a very sweet experience.. We ordered our usual menu : Fattouch - Hommous - fries - Warak Ainab - mixed pastries plate - Sausages - 1 mixed BBQ plate soft drinks & Juice...Bill: 95,000
Note: Stunning view, clean, lovely setting with Fairuz music playing in the background, good service, friendly staff, food wasn't bad but a bit expensive!
It is almost impossible to go out with kids and avoid some playing time! Luckily we had options to choose from..

We booked round trip tickets LBP11,000/each Adult & 6000/kid (under 3 years for free) & our exploring drop off journey started...to our shock, the kids loved it!!
I think we were more scared & worried, whereas each 1 was glued to a window looking down fearlessly and just gasping all the images in :)
Of course, we also visited our Lady of Harissa for some meditation, quite & relaxing time & to further enjoy the stunning view and thank GOD for our 2 blessings!
Marine World Museum!!! What an educational and super thrilling experience...
For just $12/Adult & free for our kids age 4 & 2, we got to Enjoy The Marine, fossils, Mammel , Bird & Rare Gems Exhibitions
The Museum was first opened in Tyre in 2001 by Dr.Jamal Younes, who has been collecting and preserving specimens for more than 30 years. Once the collection expanded they moved to this new museum in Jeita, which is large enough to display all the specimens... Today, over 2000 species with over 5000 specimens are on display (with detailed information on each display along with documented articles on how they caught them)
Note: Place was a bit hot so we had to rush through to get out!
