The island of Brac is famous because of its limestone coloured marble. Some well-known magnificent buildings are built out of it like the White House in Washington. The quarry doesn't look that white - maybe the colour appears with polishing.
The old town of Puscica is the city of the stonemasons. The small harbour appears quiet, not much is happening here. The church with the onion tower has a light blue stucco ceiling and chandelier of the same colour, wow! Reminds of the hotel room in Najran .

Radio Split is still warning of the floating
refrigerator, luckily it doesn't move in our moving direction.

The city of Corcula is situated on an almost circular peninsula surrounded by the sea.
The narrow alleys cross the city in a slight bow direction east to west. This way the cold winds from the north are kept out and the hot afternoon sun in the summer can not reach in.
Marco Polo is supposed to be born here (as claim many other places too). From the tower his birthhouse the view is magnificent.
During season there are shows of sword fighting in Corcula. This time of the year we can only visit an exhibition showing the uniforms.

The tiny village of Okuklije is situated in a fjord-like bay not visible from the open sea. There are only a few houses but several restaurants which are fighting for the guests.
High above the small bay is a chapel and even further up is an overgrown grotto. The walk up there gives us some exercise.
From the top one can see almost to Italy
