Tamas must have been reading my mind because last night, during a visit to Bacino Orseolo, I noticed the moon and took a few shots on a long exposure.
The results weren't the best in the world, but one of the photos should suffice for a blog header - at least for a while.
My family and I will be in Venice for one more full day tomorrow (Wednesday), so if you'd like to meet and eat with us,, leave a comment here.
Today was shopping day.
I stopped by many of the businesses that are always on my list when I visit Venezia.
Thankfully I had Nereo and Martina Zane with me most of the time and their advice and translation services were amazingly helpful.
Seeing Gilberto Penzo, Franco Furlanetto, and the folks at Bampa was terrific.
For lunch we all met up at Ristorante da Ivo for some of the best Venetian food I've ever had.
Among the group were Bepi Suste and his wife.
Bepi was our solid bow-man on the Hudson Expedition in 2007.
It was also great to see Nereo's wife Daniela, who joined us there and spent the second half of the day with us.
I'll be home in a few days, and as much as I love it here, there are many things I miss - including my own computer.
Dear friends: I promise to post plenty of photos and stories in the coming months.
Thanks for reading,
