Street Art!

Time to take an adventure to explore the art side while strolling on the streets of Venice....
 That's me in the red hat!
Today's post is to re-live the time that we spent in late August wandering around Venice. I must say it was a LOT of walking. But in order to see a place like Venice, you simply have to take the time exploring by walking (other than taking a gondolier, water taxi or Vaporetto). There is no other way...

 See the ornate windows with beautiful flowers? Our hotel room was on the far left !

We stumbled into a free exhibition and we came across this door entrance...
Even simple buildings can look so interesting, in the eyes of tourists like me!
We caught this young gondolier taking a moment to take a little nap. And boy, did he ever pose for us so fabulously!
Every corner around the canal is dreamy.
I will have more random posts like this one.
Lastly, I want to share my pride and joy-daughter Stephanie and son David.
Congratulations to David who found out yesterday that he got a co-op job at CrossChasm Technologies (modeling hybrid and electric vehicles). It's THE job he really wanted. Way to go!
Life is full of blessings...they are for me!
Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You for this beautiful post Virginia!
It shines from beginning to end!
Each photograph is like a painting and may I say how proud I am of Stephanie and David even though they're not my kids or is it really too weird?! lol
