People throughout time have desired the same thing. Herod the Great was responsible for much of what is known as Caesarea. On my recent trip to Israel I had an opportunity to view what was left of his palace that was built on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea. Notice, part of the ruins still exist. The large square section in the center was the pool which, I am told, was a fresh water pool. It is here that Herod Agrippa would have stayed.
Herod was an incredible builder. Some of the structures he built are still standing today. This one, however, has fallen to greater forces than he. After seeing the ruins, maybe a home on the beach is not such a good idea.
