Off we go! Very excited for our adventure!
We made it to Venice!
The Grand Canal - love the beautiful wooden boats
More Grand Canal
Busy, busy with all the boat traffic
Papparazzi waiting for George!
What I SHOULD have taken a picture of is all of the tourists crowded around taking pictures of this display. He is the talk of the town!
It didn't take Damon long to find PIZZA!
He is happy!
It's funny how fast you get used to being lost here - the streets are narrow between tall buildings so you can't see very far, and many suddenly dead end. We probably got lot at least a half a dozen times in as many hours but came to expect it and just laughed about it. We had a nice dinner on a small canal last night; Laura got cuttlefish in ink sauce with polenta - very Venetian from what we understand. Our hotel is lovely with a beautiful courtyard and our room has a canal view. Gondolas go by frequently and it's fun to watch them! Ok, we're off to tour the Doge's Palace and see the sights at St. Mark's Square! Ciao!
Tall buildings = no landmarks = hard to navigate!
Typical side canal scene
The pretty courtyard at our small hotel
This sweetie can usually be found dozing in the hotel's courtyard

Dinner on the canal - ink sauce, yum!
