  1. That is gorgeous! We must rent a house with a courtyard in Italy — a stones throw from a plaza.

    • Oh yes! That would be divine! Have you been to Burano? It’s about an hour’s ride outside of Venice by waterbus… It used to be a bustling fishing iland, but all the young’uns left for the excitement of the big city. It has largely become a retirement community… just so wonderfully peaceful and just this colourful…

      • I have been to both Murano and Burano many years ago for a brief tour. I wonder how much it would cost to rent a small villa.

  2. I imagine it would be best to go in the off season… Venice would be lovely any time of year as would Burano. (Bobby and I had a funny and odd trip to Murano as well… it was nowhere near as charming as Burano…)

    But I would venture that while a small villa could be pricy – a decent flat in the village could be very reasonable… and be in the middle of the non hub-bubbing hub…

  3. Love the filter effect. It makes it look like a picture postcard. Beautiful.

    • Funny how it becomes more what I ‘saw’ after I have a play with it… This was shot a long long time ago on my first digital camera. I think it was 3 megapixels…

      • ah yes, when 3 megapixels was really awesome . . . Still, it holds up.
