Hi Bob;

Thanks for the pictures! That is a big climb. I had no idea the country was so beautiful.

Here's a couple of pics.  One from the hillside shwoing a view of the island; and one from the nearest point lakeside, showing the steps.

True, today's gal can kick, punch and scream all the way up those stairs while carrying a full grown man. Saw that in a movie...

It's a mountainous region so I'm quessing they are pretty fit generally.  Perhaps, these days the roles reverse after 45 steps.

Whew! 90 steps. It certainly says something about the grooms desire and the bride's dietary habits.

It's the Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Mary.  You can row out to it but we didn't.  It is a popular place for weddings.  There are 90 steps up from the lakeside and tradition requires that the groom carry his bride up all 90.  Our guide was naturally asked what happens if he drops her.  She just said the wedding is off!

Hi;

Did you get to see that structure on the island in the middle of the lake?

Yes, we did and it is very beautiful.  Great walking and the locals were very welcoming.

hi bobbym

I'm very well thanks.  We had a wonderful week at Lake Bled in Slovenia.  Now got a pile of jobs to catch up on.  Today, clear out the 'work room' so the electrician can put in new ceiling lights.  Better go and start moving files.  smile

Thanks to both of you! I was able to solve with bobs push in the right direction and I was able to check my work with bobbyms contribution.

hi bobbym,

Nice to hear from you.  Hope you are well.

It took you longer to write the whole thing whereas I just did line 1.
