Fish at the Church of the Multiplication



Isn't this a lovely and fitting way to mark the location of the miracle of the loaves and the fishes? This little fishpond stands in the courtyard of the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and the Fishes in Tabgha on the shores of the beautiful Sea of Galilee, right underneath a knarled old olive tree (click the link above for a glimpse of the tree in the courtyard).

And of course, the fish are red.

What a clear shot! If it weren't for the bubbles and foam, one wouldn't know there was water there at all!

Cool capture, Robin! Perfect Ruby Tuesday find.

I agree it is a lovely way to mark the miracle of the loaves and fishes.

Hope you are well.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I like this photo. These fishes are like swimming in the air!!!
It's either shallow pond or water is clean.
Thanks for sharing.
