Northern Israel

Northern Israel

This is our last full day in Israel.  We leave early tomorrow morning to catch our flight home.  We’re heading to Northern Israel near the Lebanon and Syria borders.

I started the day going to the beach to watch and photograph the sunrise.  Matt and Becca took me up on my offer to be photographed.  So did Lehi and his sons Laman, Lemuel, and Nephi.  We were also joined by Mahonri Moriancumer.

Breakfast Today

… we headed to Tiberias for Matt to see a doctor.  He’s been coughing a lot and we’re all worried that he’s getting sicker.  As a result, Becca found a place where he can get in this morning to see a doctor.

John Ready to Head Out for the Day

We got to Tiberias, found the pharmacy and doctor’s office, and I hung out outside taking pictures.  I did go in for a short while to find they have Voltairan Gel for a fraction of the cost and over-the-counter!  (The USA is the only country according to my doctor that requires a prescription for this gel.  It’s for joint pain.)

Church of the Beatitudes

The Church of the Beatitudes was the next stop.  I imagine the Sermon on the Mount covered much ground.  This church is located in the vicinity of where we suspect it took place.

Banias

Banias is a spring and river near a place the scriptures calls Caesarea Philippi.  Some believe Jesus and his apostles frequented this area.  When you see it, you can understand why.  It is beautiful.
