Sea of Galilee Swim

Posted in: River Swim | 0

My next swim is in Israel set for October 21 or 22

Everyone can follow my swim  progress online in real time, as I will be bringing my GPS. You can find the link next week at my Twitter account @swimtheriver.

.. I will swim a double-crossing of the Sea of Galilee, the lake of Genneserat, The Sea of Tiberias (see John 6:1; Luke 5:1), or, as the Israelis refer to it, the Kinneret. Anyone familiar with the Bible knows that this is the body of water that the Lord Jesus calmed during a terrible storm and even walked upon to aid His disciples. (Matthew 8:23-27; 14:22-33

It’s been on my bucket list to swim across and back on the Galilee and now I’m finally almost there. As a Catholic a Christian and a swimmer it’s kinda cool thing to do. It’s like a surreal moment.
No need for me to swim hard & fast on my return crossing, I prefer to enjoy the swim and soak up all the moments and views of this historic place.
. My sister who is the Doctor in the family will assist on the support boat, it’s our first time in Israel and we are both excited to visit & explore our Holyland.
