Day 2 - St. James, Dinner, Outdoor Mass, Fields, Lodging

Beautiful Snjezana Zovko, our local guide, was terrific!
The locations of the key landmarks form an equilateral triangle.
St. James Church grounds are extensive, varied and fascinating.
Krisevac (Cross Mtn), the highest mtn, from St. James Church.
Pilgrims touch the water seeping from the Risen Christ.
Can you see the barely discernible cross on the mountaintop?
Fr. Slavko's grave site. The day after he died,
Mary said that he was born into Heaven.
Fr. Svet, extraordinary writer, blessing the pilgrims.
A hearty lasagna lunch at Columbo's for T...
and a bowl of delicious spaghetti for me.
The California Contingent enjoying superb pizzas at Columbo's.
Our grand view of St. James from our private balcony.
Dinner: veal cutlets, potatoes, salad, bread, wine.
Katie, Ana, Chris, & Joseph w/ yummy cake.
Happy Birthday to the birthday boys and girl.
Scrumptious, moist cake...mm-mmm good!
Outdoor confessions -- the thing to do when in Medjugorje..
Confessors lining up before The Mass.
Even the ants are special...and walked in lines...
in peaceful Medjugorje.
Walking through the lush vineyards...
down wildflower-lined bucolic footpaths...
beneath shady trees and past barking dogs...
with views of broadening, well-trod paths of Apparition Hill...
and past a haystack in the field. Where's Little Boy Blue?
T enjoying the cool of the evening.
Spartan, no-frills accommodations worthy of a pilgrim.
2 beds, a wardrobe closet, a nightstand, a chair and a crucifix.
Sleeping in single beds was foreign to us. What a concept.
We lived out of our suitcases. No dresser.
European versions of everyday household cleaners.
A thoroughly modern kitchen with a Euro feel.
Dining room, set for the next morning's convivial breakfast.
Mother Mary appeared here to the visionary, Vicka.
