Another great day in Israel for Maccabi Canada's Junior Delegation. This time it was in the North, where we paddled down the Jordan River. Amazing views and pretty calm water were in abundance for most of the day, although near the end of the ride we found a giant rapid to go down.
Our next stop was dinner and a cruise. The setting for dinner was a beautiful seafood restaurant, which was followed by a sunset cruise into the mountains, while listening to some great music.
Tomorrow is the last day of our Junior Delegation's Israel Experience, with our boys and girls planting trees and visiting Latrun. Competition for some members begin as early as Thursday morning.
Wednesday is also the day we welcome the rest of Maccabi Canada's delegation. Our full team of more than 600 athletes and coaches will be in Israel, and with that comes the realization that we are only 1 day away from the Opening Ceremonies.
