No golden sunrise this morning, just grey skies and rain showers.
We were one of the earliest boats out on the Sea of Galilee, and while we still felt very safe in the rough weather conditions it was easy to imagine how frightened the disciples might have been in their little boat when a storm blew up.
Those boatmen really know how to put a smile on the faces of their visitors right from the outset. They raised the Aussie flag, and with a recording booming out in the background we all sang a hearty version of 'Advance Australia Fair'.
Usually they cut the motor once the boat's out on the lake, but with the waters growing more turbulent by the minute they couldn't afford to let the boat bob around like a cork, so Boak had to read his Bible passage a tad louder, to be heard over the chugging motor.
