One-Word-Sunday-Umbrellas

~~~~~

 

This week’s images

come from Italy and France.

Venice and Murano…

 

…provided us with our first wet weather day

since leaving Australia.

 

More wet weather at Pompeii where even under cover

colourful umbrellas were required

to keep rain at bay.

 

And the downpour eased we had to

negotiate flooded streets before

reaching our coach.

At least the umbrellas at Nice were being used

to keep the sun away and afford some privacy

on Nice’s private beaches.

After spending…

…a damp morning in, and around,

St Mark’s square in Venice…

…moved over to Murano for lunch.


Colourful…

…Murano…

…lifted our spirits…

…in more ways than one.

 

…Surprisingly after a looong lunch…

…no-one seemed to notice the very light

drizzle still falling as we made our way

back to our ferry ride home.

The first rain we had during our European Holiday… 


was in Venice.

Rain (outside) gave us an ideal opportunity…

 

…to spend the afternoon carousing

with newly acquired friends

FOWChallenge-Gregarious

~~~~~

~~~~~

gregarious

(of a person) fond of company; sociable.

 

It didn’t matter that it was raining in… 

St Mark’s Square in Venice,

tourists, I believe a gregarious by nature.


We got to know fellow travellers while

sheltering from the rain

followed by a wonderful lunch

in Murano.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Legs-Feet

~~~~~

I thought this would be a difficult challenge because

I don’t set out to photograph people these days.

However, it’s scary what some cheap software and

a digital camera can glean from an image.

Legs entertaining tourists.

London legs admiring…

..these legs

Dry legs on wet afternoon in Murano.

Pompeii legs.

Dutch (Amsterdam) legs.

 

 

A business woman’s legs?

Sun baking legs.

Just hope they do not end up like

my sun baked head 🙂

More January legs watching…

…these seemingly untiring legs.
