Venice

Well, we're not in St. Simons right now, but in Venice, Italy.  But, we just thought some of the cool cats might like to know what's going on in Italy.

Something I read preparing for the trip said that you never forget the first time you see Venice  and i think they're right.  There's just no city in the world like it. 

There are a lot of tourists here, but nothing like it would be in the summer.  I'm glad we came this time of year.

The gondola rides are expensive now and there is a kind of large water taxi that most people use, but it's just so lovely to see these guys at work.  Late last afternoon, we saw a gondola that had evidently been kitted out for an Indian couple who had just been married.  It had a little seat shaped like two hearts and covered with red flowers.  They were so cute and shy and so much in love. 

They were in one of the smaller canals like the one above. 

I wish I could just send for the cats and move here.  But, Neal hates water.  It would drive him mad to loook all this water around all the time.  .

I agree! I will never forget the first time I saw Venice, but it is even better when you return. It feels like a long lost friend. The trip when I took my youngest son, who was still a teenager, was the best!
