We were disappointed that the short film about the sex life of date palms wasn't playing because of COVID.  However, we had a nice lunch in the Shield's Date Garden outdoor cafe.  I started with an appetizer of a stuffed date wrapped in bacon.  This was great!  I want to make this at home!  I also had the signature salad, which is spinach with fruit and dates.  There is a large store with lots of date products.  I enjoyed the marzipan-stuffed dates the most.  I also had their famous date shake.

There is a pleasant walk with representations of moments from the life of Jesus.  The path wanders through citrus groves and past date palms.  There is a nice pond and fountain, too.
