After breakfast our first stop was the Boat, Faith, and an hour with Daniel Carmel. Awesome!!!
When we were done with the boat ride we proceeded to the Ancient Boat Museum to see the boat that had been salvaged from the Sea of Galilee and dates back 2000 years. They have a great movie that explains the many efforts used to preserve this ancient boat.
We finished off the morning by visiting 3 sites on the north shore of the Sea of Galilee. Tabgha commemorates the feeding of the 5000
. Phyllis, Doron & I do a lot of sitting around & waiting.
Our last visit of the morning was to Capernaum where we visited the house of St Peter and the Synagogue
Doron treated us to lunch for some St Peter's fish and then we were off to the Nazareth Village. \We got a glimpse of what life was like at the time of Jesus. This was a favorite of the kids and even some of the adults were impressed.
Next we went 1mile away to modern Nazareth. We visited the Church of the Annunciation built over the cave homes of the time. This is in commemoration of the annunciation of the angel Gabrial to Mary.
We headed back toward the Sea of Galilee and we stopped at the Jordan River where we all had the opportunity to reaffirm our baptism. Three of the group wanted to be immersed and since there was not a minister to do so they immeresed each other.
