The gang on the sea of Galilee. Even though it is tecnhically a lake, make no mistake. It ain't teeny.
hmmm ... the USA and Israel united by the cross?!
Laurel and Jill enjoying the ride ... and getting wet!
How do these boats stay afloat?
More flowers ... I can't help myself.
David and others at the base of the water cistern.
We sing some hymns in the ampitheater at Caesarea. Nice acoustics! Where's my electric guitar?
Caesarea - Abraham prepares us for what we will see. Abraham is a wonderful guide.
Teaching at Caesarea. The vomitorium is just inside those doorways. Are we far really all that different today?
Megiddo - That's blurry cattle in the background grazing on the nearby hill.
Mt. Carmel where Elijah peed on the prophets of baal ... figuratively speaking, that is.
Megiddo ... I think. So much to see. Sometimes they start to blur together a bit.
Some children enjoying the water at Caesarea.
This might have been at Megiddo. I don't remember. I just like the simple beauty of these desert flowers.
Was this where Herod's palace sat ... can't remember.
Caesarea shoreline. Herod had build a palace that literally stood over the water on columns. He had also pushed back the sea with technology that we can hardly replicate today.
Some Japanese tourists brought their umbrellas to shield them from the sun. Smart!
Oh ... yeah ... and AT&T has more bars .... ;P
Jill looking on with the rest of us as we were serenaded by a fellow Christian group to some wonderful hymns after we serenaded them first.
Joe taking a rest. No wonder he needed it, he was literally all over the place taking video from every imaginable angle all during the trip. Can't wait to see what he puts together.
Joanna and the rest of us singing from the stage at the ampitheater in Caesarea.
The valley of Meggido (where the battle of Armeggedon will take place) seen from Mt. Carmel where Elijah exposed the prophets of Baal as fakes. Far in the distance on the left is a strategic military airstrip. The jets are kept underground.
A 10mile long aqueduct that brought water to Caesarea. Now it is enjoyed by families for picnics on the beach. The sign on the left is from ancient Roman times. It says, "No Toga, no service".
A mineret near a mosque in Caesarea from the time of the occupation of the Muslims.
Bobbi and Stausch in the ancient gate at Caesarea. The gate forced entering horses to make a sharp right angle so that they couldn't charge in.
Another column in the synogogue in Capernaum
Capernaum and the synogogue
Inside the church that sits over Peter's house
Even the pets are reverent in Capernaum
Peter's house (probably). They found all kinds of fishing artifacts in this home here in Capernaum. The beams overhead are the bottom of the Catholic spaceship.
The sea of Galilee is pretty from every angle.
More grinding stones in Capernaum

Columns in the synogogue in Capernaum. Jesus certainly attended here.
