Venice Details


Venice...
We walked, we took a gondola ride,
 we walked and window shopped...
 we ate gelato every day, loads of pasta and delicious pastries...
 we walked down narrow mysterious streets
 and took a romantic boat ride on the Grand Canal at sunset.

Here are some random shots...
...things that caught my eye.























Hope you got a sense...a flavor of our time in Venice.

It has been a rough few weeks
 since we returned home from our trip...
 but at least we now have power and heat.
 October is way too early for a snowstorm! 

Hope you are warm and safe.

Venice was my all time favorite place in Europe. I adored all the walkways and bridges. The architecture is fabulous. Thanks for taking me down memory lane. I know you loved it *and the gelato.

Ah Laura …The knack of knowing how to mix chippy paint and Chanel shoes is not in everyone's talent bag. Lovely to catch up with your wonderful pictures. Pleased you had sunshine and laughter.
