We celebrated Helen Donagan's birthday on the sea of Galilee in a wooden boat. The crew played Waltzing Matilda and hoisted the Australian flag! All the same it was a special moment with no storm and no expectation then that Ray would walk on water!
We have visited the Jordan River Baptism site (see Peter Tuohy is there below); Capernaum - and the nearby Mount of the Beatitudes; Cana and the sign of Jesus first miracle - water into wine; Nazareth - Jesus home town (now a bustling metropolis) and the Mount of Transfiguration where Ray celebrated the eucharist. Its all pretty amazing. We even had a lunch of loaves and fishes by the Sea of Galilee!
