round the Sea of Gallilee

Early Friday morning we loaded up our kayaks and headed down to the Sea of Galilee for a 2 day circumnavigation. It was a cold grey rainy day and the fog made the drive down a bit precarious.We all arrived safely at Kibbutz Ginnosar, loaded our boats and set off north on the first leg of the journey. The sea was calm, grey heavy clouds promised rain later on and it was a bit on the cool side. The rain did come much later and the weather got colder.It was wonderful to paddle among the falling rain watching the drops bounce and dance on the water. We reached Ein Gev in the late afternoon, unpacked , hot showers and a hot meal and then sleep. Saturday , after a lazy breakfast we set out again, no rain today , overcast skies, but easy conditions for a morning paddle. Later on the last leg the wind really picked up and made hard paddling to finish the trip. There were a lot of photographers out there and I am sure we will have some great pics.
