As you can see the weather is still beautiful, sunny and in the mid 70’s
Today we took a tour of Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee about an hours drive, we were not given headsets for this tour so it was very hard to hear our guide, so many of the sites I did not understand the full meaning which took away from the experience.
Mt. Carmel and the Baha’i Gardens a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The Basilica of the Annunciation the largest in the Middle East and is maintained by the Franciscan monks. Below the church contains the grotto which is said where lived lived and the site of the annunciation.
Tabgha located on the Northwestern side of the Sea of Galilee is home to the Church of Primacy, Mount of the Beatitudes and Capernaum.
Church of the Primacy located on the Sea of Galilee is the site of the multiplication of loaves of bread and fish and where Jesus instructed Peter to “Feed my sheep”
Capernaum where Jesus lived for a time
The Mount of the Beatitudes, the site of the Sermon on the Mount
Jordan River where Jesus was baptized by John
We were suppose to leave Haifa today but due to some maintenance issues, the emergency generator, we will now overnight here and leave tomorrow at around noon. This now allows us some time to walk around Haifa see the Baha’I gardens which are stunning, and walk around the German colony.
back to Turkey tomorrow.
