Israel – Day 5 – October 20th

I was up at 5:30 am and the air mattress that I had was partially deflated … This is a bitch! I couldn’t think of what to do with it so I went back to sleep until 7:30.

Slowly, but slowly everyone started to wake up. Breakfast was in stages along with going swimming in the Sea of Galilee.UzielCampingtrip

We took down the tents and mattresses – all very fine – and we did get out before Sheila’s car went kaput. It was the batteries. We stood in the parking lot borrowing cables from another tourist. Believe it or not, the men in my party couldn’t get the cables to hook up. They were scratching their heads about it and┬áJack, the 17 year old nephew of Kevin had the brilliant idea of hooking it up right. And so the car was fixed!

Capernaum was the next stop around the sea. It was famous for it’s architecture. Looking at it I can see how it used to be.
CapernaumWe arrived at Meshushim Pool, the largest reserve in the Golan Heights, after that. I sat outside and wrote because my hip was fragile but before that I was treated to the VIEW. This is one of the pictures.

Oct20I couldn’t go down to the Pools … it was way down the stairs, and I mean that quite literally. ┬áThe stone ‘stairs’ crisscrossed down the valley. But I got pool photos from the brochure. This is it.
