A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Happiness-is…

~~~~~

Happiness varies depending on where I am.

On holiday…

…happiness is good food,

good company…

in good surroundings.

At home…

…happiness is playing with the dog…

…shopping online or in person.

The only condition is that I

HAVE TO

buy something.

 

When that’s all done…well we can

learn from the animals can’t we?

 

 

Also at home, happiness is reading and comparing

thoughts with MGW should we happen to read

the same book or author.

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.

in a noisy, lively way.

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.
