Fishing the Sea of Galilee (Israel) Wordless Wednesday

Last Wednesday I was cruising around Israel’s Sea of Galilee, a body of water I had heard about all my life through Sunday school and other church activities. It was a great day. the final steps of the boat ride included one of the guys on the boat asking if we’d like to see if we could catch fish. Here are a few photos of his throwing the net & pulling it in, with a slide show beneath giving you a step by step! It was beautiful to watch (though I’d buy him a belt!)

      My pleasure on the link up! The lack of belt didn’t really bother anyone I guess… he stayed focused on the fish til the job was done.

    Wow! That must have been so cool to throw a net into the Sea of Galilee! How many fish did you end up getting?

      One pitch of the net brought back three tilapia — one was really quite big the others were keepable.

    Wow, I love the shots! Funny how I didn’t notice that he needed a belt until you wrote about it. Your photos tell a wonderful story! Luv it, JP!
