Floating on the Dead Sea

  Yes…there is Bud….floating on the Dead Sea  on the last day of our pilgrimage-:)!! Looks about as perfect as possible until you spot fellow pilgrim Dan…He is REALLY getting the full experience. The mud cake is suppose to make you younger and healthier-:)!!  We didn’t even recognize him when he came out😄!!! 

 And here are the ‘rules’… 

 Seriously, the ride through the Judean desert was beautiful. Take a look at our last journey of the Pilgrimage.

  The Dead Sea… Where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found by a shepherd boy. We also rode a cable car high above the Dead Sea to Masada, the site of the battle between the Jewish a People and the Romans  


At the airport and off to the USA!!!! How can I ever begin to thank my self sacrificing husband, my college roommate (Molly and her husband Dick Daly) , all the giving ‘charioteers’, Chris for actually physically carrying me down the longest boat ramp that I have ever seen in my entire life–to make sure I was able to experience the ride on the Sea of Galilee, Greg for offering his aisle seat-not once but twice  😄😄😄😄, the prayer warriors, bag carriers and on and on when one has to humbly depend on others–what Lessons Learned!!! Here is Greg raising his hand to help (smile)and with Chris right beside him… 

Thank you ‘charioteers’ for all your kindness—they will never be forgotten!!  


 Thank YOU for following our journey!!!

    An awesome trip! Thank you for sharing. Your being in a wheelchair reminded me of taking Elizabeth everywhere. I hope you get that knee looked at when you get home!
