Postcard from Venice II


Murano ... the glass-making island (above and below).  The blue sculpture in front of the clock tower above is glass!


And the very colourful island of Burano where lace was traditionally made:





Hard to believe that just over a week ago we were enjoying such wonderful weather in Italy ... and when we got back to Germany it was still pretty good.  Now autumn has set in with a vengeance ... just 2.6 degrees centigrade this morning!!!

  1. I know you're not supposed to be envious..but I am! I would have loved to see that glass sculpture close up and a bit more of the glassware there. I am glad for you though that you are getting around Europe enjoying it all.

  3. Sigh. I have been to Venice, in the middle of Winter actually, it was such a long to ago. What a beautiful place.

  4. It looks so lovely I'm going to add Venice to my list of places to go. Martin was there on business a couple of years but I got left home with the kids and the dog.
