More Holy Land Pictures

It is a slow process to view and edit photos for posting. Memories associated with the pictures make it difficult to scale down - you want to share what you saw yet you cannot show every detail or every picture for that matter. Here are a few I would like to share with you.
Basilica of the Annunciation

Basilica of the Annunciation

Church of Gethsemane, know also as the Church of All Nations

Church of the Multiplication

View into a Jewish cemetery. Mourners leave rocks instead of flowers.

Festival of Lights was a multi-day event held in Jerusalem.

A view of the light dome from underneath.

Mount Carmel

Stella Maris Church

Dome in the Stella Maris Church
View of the Mediterranean Sea as seen from the Stella Maris Church

Sunrise over the Sea of Galilee
These are a few of my favorites. I will continue to post as I edit.

We're Back!

Healing in the Dead Sea
This is one of roughly 2,000 pictures we took while in Israel. Here, we are in the Dead Sea, covered in mud. We we able to float in two feet of water and this was the first time I was able to float my heavy hips! A little of the water splashed on my face and I have to say, it was the nastiest taste ever and I thought my eyes would never stop burning.
Mom, Cam and I traveled to the Holy Land with 20 other pilgrims. Our guide for the week was Tony, an archaeologist with a PhD. He was a wealth of information and had even worked on some of the sites we visited. He shared so much information and took us to so many places, it will take time to digest and document it all.  To show you what a small world we live in, our guide, Tony, attended Boston University - the same school Cam attended! Of all the schools in the world! I look forward to sharing more photos as time goes on.
