|There was literally hundreds of these little statues over Europe..|
So to my surprise and delight Dermot and Brid both had desires make this a destination...Yeah !!!is all I could think.

I kept saying please God let us get this hire car to the drop off spot without any scratches on it.
we overrode the commands from the Gps and took a chance. It worked, we were heading toward Venice after a lunch stop.
This was going to be a little tricky as we had acquired a few extra pieces of hand luggage, in the way of food stables.
We found our way to the Vaporetto- water bus- and stayed on it until our stop.
|Just about to enter our apartment. The canal is on the right |
|Bridge of sights near San Marco|
|A view of San marco from the vaporetto coming from Murano|
Did I tell you that every bridge over every Canal is curved, so there are steps up over the bridge and down the bridge- quite annoying for carrying suitcases -even if they were not heavy.

We all loved Venice even though we got a little lost and got our way home to our apartment a new way each time we ventured out.

The streets are very tiring on your feet and legs as there is no give at all. I found myself rather tired most days of our trip as we constantly were on the go and on veryy hard cobblestones or paved paths. We found some grass in Murano while we waite for the vaporetto, and we could not resist the temptation to sit and lie on the grass. Pure Bliss. The simple pleasures we take for granted.
