The Jesus Boat

It is still our first day and we're heading to our 4th stop...all before lunch! This stop is at the Yigal Allon Centre at the Kibbutz Ginosar.

The museum houses a fishing boat discovered in 1986 by two brothers, Moshe and Yuval Lufan. It dates back to the 1st century and is a great example of boats from that era.

The story of its recovery and preservation is a great one. You can read about it here.

The Sea of Galilee contains about 20 types of edible fish. So it was appropriate we got the fish for lunch.

Now this is not my first time at the rodeo so I was one of the few who got shawarmas. I did manage to get a tasty Maccabee beer.
