Picnic at the Jordan River Wetlands

After our hot walk, we wanted to swim, but refused to pay 55 shekels for a lousy hot private beach. So we paid instead for an entry into a place that looked like it might afford some shade. It was a huge campsite and park - some of it very poorly maintained. But it also included an archeological site - the town of Bethsaida. Here the bilingual inscriptions are not translations but different stories. So I took a series of pictures for translation exercises- but I haven't translated them yet. - do offer translations if you wish and leave a note or a link in the comments.
