Having returned to the “other place” I thought I would let you know that I arrived safely early the morning of January 3. According to the clock by my chair I walked in the door at 12:15 am. That was 9:15 am in Venice on January 3. I had been awakened by my alarm in Venice on January 2 at 5 am…approximately 28 hours with no sleep. Or at least very little sleep and only during the 5 hour flight from Detroit to Seattle. I dodged a bullet going through Detroit rather than JFK in New York…because I would still be there. It was snowy in Detroit but not nearly as bad as New York and Boston.
I would have posted this several days ago but I’ve been having internet connectivity problems in “this other place”.
Here is the sunrise taken from the Alilaguna, the low, slow boat, to the airport Thursday morning. It turned out pretty good considering the windows are covered with salt spray from the lagoon.
Okay, maybe it is just me and I did not do this on purpose, I did not see this until I put the photos on the computer but it sure looks like a heart in the middle of this photo.
(and due to the “connectivity problems” I had to give you the link to that picture.
I really wanted to get the entire “fish” that is Venice from the air but just as it was coming into view….clouds, we entered the clouds. Maybe next time.
And for those of you who would like a link to the album of 926 pictures: Venice, City of My Dreams 2013 where you can play them as a slide show:
All is well here and my dear Lili won’t let me out of her sight. When I got here she slept on me but the next morning when I awoke she was sleeping on my suitcase. It was not going out the door without her permission.
