Grand Canal, Venice

Ever since Linda and I visited Italy last year, I have had this strong yearning to return. Not surprising I suppose, it is such a beautiful country. We loved everything about it, from the hustle and bustle in Rome, the rustic beauty of Tuscany, to the romantic atmosphere in Venice. We loved the food – first time I ever tasted truffles – and the fabulous coffee . . . . oh the coffee! We even bought an espresso machine when we got back . . . just love those Americanos . . .

This is one of my favorite shots in Venice. It is the first “view” of the Grand Canal I had after winding through the many narrow streets and then emerging from between building to this fabulous view! I had seen pictures, read all about it, but nothing really prepares you for that time when you first lay eyes on the Grand Canal.

We did take a ride in one of those gondolas, but not on the day this picture was taken.That first day was all about exploring and taking photos of that wonderful place.
