GaLiLeE day 3 and 4

Day 3... we took a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, got to see a 2000 year old fishing boat, went to the Mt. of Beatitudes (the traditional site of the Sermon on the Mount), Tabgha (location of the miracle of the loaves and the fishes), Capernaum (the Savior's town in the Galilee), St. Peter's Primacy (where Peter was called) and Kursi (where Christ cast the legion of devils into the swine)

The church in the background was built over Peter's home in Capernaum
St. Peter's Primacy - the water usually goes right up to that step behind us. These stones used to hold pillars inside them

Day 4... we had class again, free time and went rafting on the Jordan river (except it wasn't really rafting, more like floating, but still fun). That night we went a fish restaurant and then to Tiberias for ice cream and little bit of shopping

where we lived (we were so close to the beach, it was incredible)
Ever eaten Tilapia? This is what it looks like....
It was sooo good!
