Venice ... I meet my Penpal - Part Two

The police of Venice.

One of the many canals.

Harbour view near St Mark's Square.

How skinny are you?

This is a sight all through Italy.....

Love this fruit and vegi  barge.

Can't believe how calm the water is.

Now this boat has style.

Yes, churches in all the piazza's of Venice too.

Pisa is not the only place with a leaning tower.

This is the room we had.  I was surprised when I wend to feel the wall paper to discover it was cloth.  That is cording that runs up the corner and along the ceiling edge.  Not really my taste but it so suits being in Venice.

Our final sunset in Venice taken from the Rialto Bridge by our daughter.

Ok...here I am, the one with the buckle.  I figure you have been kind enough to follow our journey I would say hello to you.  I hope my friend (penpal) doesn't mind.  I just love this shot with the gondola in the background.  I am so glad we had the chance to meet up.  Someday it would be nice to catch up with her in her home in Finland.
Thanks for flying over and spending all the time with us.   We all really enjoyed it.  Still think that your English was brilliant.  Our son keeps commenting on that fact to everyone. 

Forgot to add.....I loved Venice.  I am not a shopper but I loved all their little shops and I think I could be easily swayed if I lived their to get in to the fashion of things.  Leather everywhere, glass, masks, books. So wonderful.
