The Fifth Day – The Sea of Galilee

After visiting Capernaum, we raced down to Ginosar to catch our boat.

Lunch-time at the kibbutz school. There were also a couple of classes of Druze school-children around the museum and wharf.

01 - Flag

When we boarded the boat, they raised an Australian flag and played the Australian and Israeli national anthems – which was both a little weird and disgruntled the kiwis.

It took about 45 minutes to cross the 15-ish kilometres from Kibbutz Ginosar to Kibbutz Ein Gev, where we had lunch at a specialised fish restaurant.

We had salad and soup for starter.

Mains was a fish. I don’t normally like fish, but I figured I couldn’t come and not it eat. It was a little scary when it came out.

But it didn’t taste too bad.

    So when they said a fish lunch, they really meant a whole fish lunch. Wow! I am glad you managed it alright!

    Was there any dessert? Good job on the fish, though.

    Yes, I’d say that fish lunch would be a little scary! Well done for eating it.

    Prunes for dessert! Fresh prunes.
