Love affair with Venice

6 Oct

We love Venice. We took our fourth trip there last month, this time shepherding our son who was visiting Italy for the first time. It was fun to see this favorite destination through new eyes! No travelogue this time, just some nice photos to share.

    I love each of these pictures! Do NOT leave your camera home on any trip you make!!! Cindy is cute. Did you forget to include a picture of what left her guardian’s store?

      Ok, Ok, I’ll take the camera! I bought the most expensive piece ever (for me), a hand-crafted set of jet black glass beads of graduated sizes, each perfectly matched to it’s “twin” across the necklace. I’ll have to have Ric take a picture of me wearing it. Cindy actually “hugs” people. She grabs you around the calf and holds on, pressing her check to your leg. So sweet!

    Lol, that would probably be nice for you, but not for those of us travelling through your pics! 🙂

      Thanks Anita! I have so many pictures of Venice from our four trips! Next time I think I should just go without a camera.

    Would love to visit you two in Rome some day. Haven’t been there for 40 years and never to Venice or Florence. Love you and enjoy being connected again via your blog.

      Thanks Sydney! We’d love to see you, to say the least! You have to drop me a line and tell me about life in Taylor’s Falls.
