Next we went to Megiddo. On this mountain there have been at least 27 different settlements here and as we walked around everyone found many pieces of pottery, most dating back to the Roman times.
We also toured more water tunnels of the Megiddo Springs.
Then on to Mt. Carmel. Here was the place where Elijah and the prophets of Baal had their confrontation. We read the whole story found in I Kings 18:16-45.

Our final stop was Caesarea, located on the Mediterranean Sea. It is another place where King Herod the Great built a palace, as well as a Roman type theater and a hippodrome for horse races and other events.
The water was so beautiful here. It was the first time to see the Mediterranean Sea and we wished we could have stayed longer than just a few minutes!!
After a farewell dinner in Tel Aviv, we arrived at the airport to catch a 11:30 p.m. flight home. It was a wonderful trip. Everything was perfectly planned and we did so many interesting things. Our guide was awesome, our group was great, and I feel like it was a once in lifetime trip, to really get to see the Bible come to life. I loved every minute of it!!
