In a dry hot climate that we live in we see this red colour

quite often, particularly during summer.

However, on a canal in Venice it seemed out of place.

So much water…

One of the many tourist vessels on the Grand Canal.

Tourist Gondolas.

On a dry day in Murano I suspect

these boats may be more active.

A Yacht or a Boat?

Big enough for the latter…though

I suspect it may be the former.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Boats-and-Ships

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Dishes-Silverware

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Dishes-Silverware

 

I am not certain that I have nailed this challenge this week.

There are dishes that make one lick one’s lips.

 Then there are these dishes….

 

plates, bowls and cutlery.

Unfortunately all these need washing

after the dish in consumed.

 

Finally, there appears to be some additions to this table.

Something to lubricate the gastronomical tract maybe?

Travel Theme-Rain

My

Rain

Travel Theme.

Our first wet, but not cold, day was in Venice.

Umbrellas were the order of the morning.

Finding a seat in a sidewalk coffee shop,

which barely kept us dry, was an ideal way to

spend an hour or so lovingly caressing a cup of coffee.

The long coffee break was so we did not have to walk

several hundred yards, in the rain, and back again

to board the ferry for our journey to, and lunch at, Murano.

 Even in steady rain colourful Murano

was well worth the visit.

A convivial afternoon was had by all.

Although ponchos and umbrellas were still clearly

 heading the fashion trend, Mother Nature eased up

a little as we walked back to our ferry and

a ride back to our hotel.

The private sections of the Nice beach front were…

marked by areas of umbrellas.

St Peter’s Square at the

Floral Friday Challenge.

The Faraglioni Rock Formation…

off Capri island, Italy…

sets the scene…

for this week’s Floral Friday images.

 

 I would be only guessing the name of these plants

but I do like both.

The purple/blue one looks a bit like

a Tibouchina, however,

ours have never been climbers.
