A fast moving thunderstorm passed over the Danube while leaving Budapest on a recent Viking cruise . I went to the top deck after.
We recently spent a few days in Park City, Utah. Took the chair lift up. Looks a lot different in the summer with no snow.

In the old town of Šibenik there is a Catholic shrine built into the rocks.

Taken as we were departing Korčula.
Korčula is an island on the Dalmatian coast of the Adriatic Sea
This church is accessible by boat from several locations in Boka Bay. We used the Perast Marina.
The story is on July 22, 1452: two sailors, returning to Perast from a difficult voyage, discovered an icon of the Madonna and Child resting on a rock in a shallow part of the Bay. Considering the find a miracle, they vowed to build a church on the spot. The sailors dropped stones around the spot where the icon was found, slowly creating an islet and building a small chapel. It soon became a tradition for sailors to drop stones in the water around the chapel before a voyage, to contribute to the strength of its foundations and to ask the Virgin Mother to bring them safely home.
