Venice - part 2

 Looking from inside the Bridge of Sighs

The Bridge of Sighs joins the Doges Palace with the state prison


We found a small passage that took us canal side on the other side of the Bridge of Sighs so we got a view that isn't normally seen

St. Mark's Square

People were beheaded between the 2 pillars!

St Mark's Basilica and the Doges Palace 

The main staircase inside the Doges Palace 

There are many, many paintings and acres of 24ct gold leaf

A visit!

I thought I would drop by my blog and give an update!

On the 9th of August we celebrated my Mum's 80th birthday. She is opening her quilt! It was a very quiet celebration, just Mum, DD, Little Gromit, The Oh! Bearded One, SofM and his girlfriend.

Her cake made by DD.

It was a lovely hot sunny day so Little Gromit was able to play out in the garden and in his paddling pool. He had great fun!

A rare photo of me and Mum!

The Oh! Bearded One & I have just come back from a 5 day jaunt to Venice. I leave you with a photo of us in front of the Bridge of Sighs. 

I will show more photos of Venice and what I've been working on recently.
