Israel Day 1!

Wow, what a day. Trying to deal with jet lag ( it is 8 hours later here than at home), we were up at 6, had our luggage packed and out of the room by 7, ate a huge Israeli buffet breakfast and were on the bus by eight.

Here you see the group taking things in at the ruins of a theater in Caesaria. From there we went up to top of Mt. Carmel, overlooking the Valley of Armmageddon, where Elijah challenged the false prophets of Baal.

Then off to Tiberius on the Sea of Galilee, where we sent the night at the Dan Panorama, a luxury hotel right on the water front.

Day one was pretty easy, more posts and pics are on the way

Regards from the Doerings........
