Still in Venice,

or more precisely Murano.

Not deep water but it certainly was everywhere.

Umbrellas were the order of the day.



A few more paces in the same direction

and these legs…

were definitely going to be wet.


Not heavy rain…

…just continuous


Water-Water-Everywhere:  #11







not often; seldom

This indeed

…a rare event for me…

…as I had previously never had the opportunity

to watch a glass blower at work.





a fertile spot in a desert, where water is found.

During a few hours of free time in Venice…

…the heavens opened on St Mark’s Square.


We were fortunate enough to find a dry oasis

in one of the surrounding coffee shops.

Where, along with fellow travellers we spent

several hours chatting and keeping dry.

I don’t think I have ever taken so long

to dink a up of coffee.


Word of the Day Challenge:  Oasis








(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.
