Predivna priroda... 
Drina River and Canyon
Info: Info: In its lower, meandering course, the Drina is referred to as the kriva Drina ("bent Drina"). This has entered the Bosnian and Serbian languages as a phrase used when someone wants to resolve an unsolvable situation; it is said that he or she wants to "straighten the bent Drina".

During World War I, from September 8 to September 16, 1914, the Drina was the battlefield of bloody battles between the Serbian and Austro-Hungarian army, the Battle of Cer and Battle of Drina. In honor of the former battle, the Serbian composer Stanislav Binički (1872–1942) composed the famous March on the Drina, and in 1964 a movie of the same title was shot by director Žika Mitrović. The movie was later banned for a period of time by the Communist government, because of its portrayal of a true-to-life, bloody battle, and its use of Binički's march (banned at that time) as part of the soundtrack. The Slovenian band Laibach did a cover version of the March on the Drina titled Mars on the River Drina in their album NATO, released in 1994 during the Yugoslav Wars.

The largest impact the river has had in culture probably is the 1945 novel "Na Drini ćuprija" (The Bridge on the Drina) by the Nobel Prize laureate, Ivo Andrić; the book is about the building of a bridge near Višegrad by the Ottomans in the 16th century.

A Sheltie Bon Voyage
The weather looks set to turn for the worse…And the daylight is fast slipping away, and soon will be turning into night……Which would normally all be fine…….But we have just found out the lighthouse beacon bulb is broken…Which warns the ships and boats that sail by near the big rocks that you can see behind Molly…..And guess what……We have no replacement on hand…..Ummmmmm……But worry not…..As Jazz has found us this candle……And Molly has agreed to stand watch on the shipping lanes, and keep the candle burning bright until we can locate a new bulb….. (Not easy in this back water)……. But looking at Molly…..I just know that I can trust her to hold her station and give all that sail by a safe passage………Bon Voyage
