Hello from Israel!I have a few minutes, before I'm going to go crash. The trip is going so well, and I think it will only get better from here.
This is my I'm-going-to-Israel happy face on the way to the airport.
While the weather is hot here, anytime by the water is lovely. This is the beach of Caesarea, where the whole beach is made of shells. I love shells, so I was bent over most of the time looking for shells that I could take home. Also, here is a small peak of my pasty, white legs. Attractive, isn't it?
At about every place we go, we stop and reflect on where we are and how it relates to the Bible. It is amazing to actually see the places you read about since you are little.
We have mostly been going to different churches that are on certain holy sites. Many of them are so beautiful and amazingly old. It is fantastic to walk into a church and, because they ask for silence inside, have a moment to look and be in your own head for awhile.
One of our fearless leaders, Dr. Swanson talking to us about the Sermon on the Mount on what is believed to be where the Sermon on the Mount happened.
Last but not least, I found this feature on my camera that turns every picture into an artsy/cartoon picture. I am in love!
Well, I'm yawning, so I am going to go fall asleep and not wake up until tomorrow morning.
With love and Faery Dust,
