Today, the last day of October, we went to the Dead Sea. First up was Herod’s fortress of Masada. The view from the top was spectacular, while the story of the Jewish Wars was sobering. Then on to En Gedi, where David hid from Saul. Qumran was next, the site of the Dead Sea Scrolls caves. Finally we enjoyed a good float in the Dead Sea. What a day in the wilderness!
