Shining Forth

From inside the apartment, laying in bed to let my knee heal, I could see and hear rain all day long. It made for a cozy day of working on projects, reading, and even napping.

But by evening, I needed to get outside for some fresh air and something else to look at besides the four walls of the room.

Oh what beauty greeted me as I gingerly made my way down to the water's edge!

Turning in the other direction, it looked more like we were on a misty lake in the Alps than a harbor on the Adriatic.

With no one in sight to take a photo, a rock wall made an okay substitute photographer, though "he" didn't get us in focus, but that's okay! It almost looks like we were inserted against a beautiful backdrop.

Within just a few minutes, the light changed and there was another equally breathtaking view of Stari Grad to steal our breathe away.

Wow! What else can you say??

The physiotherapist I've seen here about my knee said it would be good to walk a little bit sometime today, so we slowly headed down the path beside the harbor, as the light continually changed in front of us.

And then, the sun took one last last glorious bow for the day, giving us a feast for the eyes. Just what I needed after a day spent in bed!

The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets.

From Zion (or Hvar, as is the case!) perfect in beauty, God shines forth.
Psalm 50: 1-2
