Another beautiful sunny day in the City of My Dreams.
My friend Karen and I decided to meet up and have a meander (meandro in Italiano…I hope it means the same thing). This will be mostly pictures of this lovely day.
The view from my bedroom window…the blue really sets off this boat.
A new friend…I got a cat fix today.
Meeting Karen at Arsenale.
No, she did not arrive by water taxi but you needed to see that blue sky.
Finding a heart at the end of the tunnel (in this case sotoportego). Karen said the legend has it if I make a wish and touch the heart I’ll be lucky in love. I said I’m not sure if I’m ready for that. Are we ever? Maybe later;-)
A few architectural details and a nice knocker
I don’t think I’ve mentioned that I need a new clock for my living room. And some lovely friends gave me money for my retirement, upcoming birthday and Christmas…”to buy something nice in Venice”.
This is my favorite:
And this one is a close second:
Probably out of my price bracket but I’ll never know if I don’t walk in and ask when the store is open. I walk by there every day on the way to the vaporetto.
Some more pictures of this beautiful day:
Ready for a shower (naked ladies are coming later)
Glass slippers…recycled soda bottles or they look like them.
Love the play of light on the columns:
A very popular house:
As promised: Naked Ladies in a Gondola (what were you expecting?)
