Yes, fog for the third day in a row. Guess I should have accepted delivery on that cat.
But being the intrepid (mad) photographer that I am, I went out anyway. Even stopped on the bridge to take a photo…so what’s new.
And you can see my window decorations from the bridge.
Meandering in my neighborhood towards Francesco de La Vigna and Celestia vaporetto stop.
This is how Babbo Natale visits the good little boys and girls in a city without working fireplaces…like any other burglar, he climbs in the window.
I think there are some disappointed young people because the vaporetto doesn’t seem to be coming.
Definitely “pea soup” fog.
Saturday is a major weekly shopping day…just like in that “other place”. Note the fur coat…you would never see a fur coat at Safeway. Okay, maybe in Hollywood or Beverly Hills.
That seems to be the Campo d. Celestia. And by now you know about my addiction to weathered doors.
Look! Another potential apartment for me! I’m more than willing to let them continue to operate the shop or bar or whatever it is behind the shutter. No, that is not a garage door…remember, no cars in Venice. Although that would not have made a difference to my late husband who never kept a car in the garage anyway.
Lovely terrace already covered with plants.
The canal outside my window Rio di S. Ternita eventually empties into the Rio d. Celestia according to my map.
This may or may not be the spot as I could be possibly turned around in the fog.
If you go in this direction you will come to my apartment…the one where I’m actually staying.
How long do you think it took him to grow the hair?
Yes, there is running water indoors. You do not need to collect it at the local fountain.
? Me in twenty years?
Not very lively at the moment but the pigeon did decide to do a fly by.
“If” I stepped out here and looked to the right I might be able to see my bridge. I said I was mad…not crazy. I have too much respect for my camera than to take a chance on slipping into the canal.
I really wanted to see the garden behind this wall but there were no windows in the doors.
I really wasn’t very far from home.
I can see that cactus from my living room window.
Karen Henderson posted a great video on her blog this morning of Venice in the fog…check it out.
