|I always notice art work and loved these two pieces on the wall behind the menorahs|
The hotel restaurant had avery nice horseshoe-shaped patio with a beautiful view the Sea of Galilee, aka Lake Kineret. As the sun set over the water and colored the sky with hues of pink and lavender, I rejoiced to be in the place where Yeshua did much of His ministry. Shelby and looked forward to the next day when we would take a boat ride across the lake.
The patio area was planted with beautiful flowering plants and citrus trees. (It gave me ideas for my back yard) The lemons, oranges, grapefruit and kumquats were huge, and we indulged in a delicious orange picked from one of the loaded branches. The fruit in Israel is gorgeous and abundant.
We ate a fabulous dinner at the restaurant buffet. Once again, the food was outstanding, especially the fresh vegetables and fruit. We went to bed early, and slept well.
The next morning dawned foggy, windy and cold. (Very different from the last time I visited the Galilee.) Below are a few photos of what the streets and shops look like in this waterfront town. I enjoyed trying to read the Hebrew signs, but was not too good at it.
Many of the buildings and streets in Tiberius are built or decorated with black stones called basalt. You'll see more of this in my next post.
When we arrived at the dock for our boat trip, we were met with wind and choppy waves. (Not good.)
|Here is our tour group. Can you tell this is not good weather for sailing?|
|And here comes our boat!|
