Upper Galilee, Golan Heights, Caesarea Philippi, Tabgha, Primacy…

Everyone got a nice full night of sleep last night. Then we took off for Mass at the Mount of Beatitudes before driving north for an hour to Caesarea Philippi, which today is called Banias. We have to drive along the Lebanese border to get to the site.

Then we stop at the Druze restaurant for my favorite lunch of the trip with Druze bread sandwiches and falafel‘s. Then we stop at the border with Syria and talk about the current situation in the Middle East.

Another 45 minute drive south to the Sea of Galilee where we visit the site of the Primacy of Peter (John 21) and then to the multiplication of loaves and fish at Tabgha. Then to Nazareth for the most fantastic dinner of the whole trip overlooking the Church of the Annunciation in the city of Nazareth.
