General Dwight D. Eisenhower and his son, captain John Eisenhower, visit Culzean Castle, Ayrshire.
In 1945, a 16-room apartment was modernized and placed at Eisenhower’s disposal for the rest of his life as a gesture of gratitude from Scotland for his war services.

Mary and I visited years ago. Ike’s apartments are preserved to this day, and you can take a guided tour. Plus, the castle grounds are well kept, and notable for its medieval orangery. The experience was all very nicely done.

The remains of a missile that landed in the Lebanese village of Kaoukaba, near the border with Syria, after Israel’s military attacked 12 Syrian and Iranian targets inside Syria on Feb 10, 2018.

As much as I love to take photos, I would only be taking a photo of that with a VERY long lens on my camera, and even then from behind a very thick wall!!
