The airplane monitor tells us we’re almost there!
Andrew at the Western Wall
Archway at…I think…Bet Shean
Taking notes at Bet Shean
Bet Shean with Mt. Gilboa (where King Saul and sons were slain) in background
Ruins of Caesarea on Mediterranean
Theater at Caesarea – most likely the very stones where Paul stood and gave his testimony before Herod Agrippa I, Festus, and Felix
View of Dead Sea from En Gedi (where David hid from Saul and where he cut off part of Saul’s robe)
Getting ready to float in the Dead Sea. Some of us found some neat things to wear – kind of like a skirt with the bottom sewed together except for two holes cut out. They were selling them by the dozen downtown Jerusalem.
(l-r…Kari Kloehn, Brooke Ratliff holding baby sister, Alexis, Amy Parker, Sis. Earlene Parker, mom, me, Elyshah Narlock, Courtney Hogg, Amber Ratliff, Moriah Narlock, Jane Beimal, Sis. Kimberly Narlock, and Louella Parker
On the theme of finding modest clothing…I”ll throw this in here (even though it doesn’t particularly relate to the Dead Sea)…It seemed skirts were everywhere in Jerusalem! We felt very in place. 🙂

Dad and Mom retreating from their float
Me floating in the Dead Sea – I might add that it tastes horrible – much worse that regular salt water in the ocean.
