Here are more pictures of Monday’s trip around the Galilee.

A little ways from Capernaum is a placed called Ginosar, where there is a museum with a 2000 year old boat discovered in recent times when the water level in the Sea was very low.  Of course Neal loves antiques, so we had to stop and see it & also met some friendly like-minded people there!

This shows the 11 different kinds of wood the boat is made from.

After we made it around the Galilee, we stopped at a baptismal site on the Jordan River.  Our friend from Australia, Rory, wanted to baptize himself in the Jordan, so setting aside the normal tourist protocol, he did it the way he wanted and had a wonderful experience.
