We were hot and grumpy when we arrived in Poryia. I took a dip in the pool and it was wonderful.
It was very windy which was just about the most refreshing feeling after the heat of downtown Tiberius.
Tiberius was very busy, we had a light meal of israeli salad, babaganush, kabobs, french fries and hummus.
We met up once again with our new friends Frank and Maryann from Victor BC Canada who were staying here at Birdsong as well.
They had already been to the sites here, one being to the Galilee boat exhibit and the hill of the beatitudes.
After a light supper of sandwiches and tea we hit the sack in a cool and breezy room surrounded by immense sliding screen doors. I slept through the night comfortably.
As the name of this B&B promises, we were awakened just before sunrise to the sound of birds singing, it was glorious!
I took a walk with another guest a couple blocks away to see the sunrise over the Sea of Galilee
I have seen sunbirds, they are common. One was feeding from the hibiscus blossoms next to the table outside this morning where we had our typical Israeli breakfast of vegetables, hardboiled eggs yogurt and toast with homeade jams and of cousre...hummus.
So, not sure what we will do today, I think I will stay here and rest, paint and swim!!
I'll report more later
