We love days off!

We had a WONDERFUL day this week! We got a van and split the cost of gas, then drove all over eastern Israel! First we started the day at a place called Gan HaSchlosha. Basically its 3 pools that are filled with water from a natural spring. Its beautiful and the cool water was a welcome break from the heat! (which reached close to 40!) 

We had a couple rafts with, since its quite deep and long! 

My dear british friend!

After a picnic lunch, we headed to the Jordan River, where Yeshua was apparently baptized.

There were tons of cat fish, looking for a meal! We couldn't resist trying to catch a few! We did not succeed.

(A friend here braided the side of my hair, it makes me feel/look like a bit of a punk! But I like it.) 

Then we headed to the steaming hot Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) where we struggled not to melt!

Its a huge place! You can almost see Jordan!

Then we cried uncle to the heat and headed home in our air conditioned van. Thank God for AC! 
We had a great day, with some amazing friends! I love how full of history this place is!
