Pilgrimage Day One: Arrival and Galilee

by Steve Ray on February 18, 2011

When we arrived the internet was down at the hotel and it was the beginning of the Sabbath so we had to wait until Sunday before the internet was fixed. I am so grateful for my iPhone that works through the 3G network so I was still able to make and upload the videos.

I started the day by running from Jerusalem to Abu Ghosh. We then packed and took a drive to the airport to meet our two buses and our local guide Amer. Both flights came in without incident– not even any lost luggage. We drove to Galilee had a nice Mass on the shore of the Sea of Galilee with the moon rising and then dinner and bed.

Jerry & Marilynn We miss you. Mom we saw you come in on video in the airport. Try to get more air time the children love it. Looks like the wine was good. Cold again in MI, Spencer tried out his new googles yesterday while I was in the shower, wow what a surprise but oh so cute. RJ finished Book 4 of Harry Potter, Maggie had a playdate with a friend, and today we are going to the Science Center. Date night for Eric and I. Hope you are having fun………………..

Blessings to all of you and those you are traveling with.
