I love Venice, Italy! It's a beautiful, historic, mysterious place.
Today, I thought I'd share my latest illustration of animals in Venice.
I think my next story idea will involve a dog gondolier, a day in the life...
My last visit was in spring of 2006 (too long ago)
Here are some of the actual animals I've met in Venice...
Animals that shared snacks with my mom & me :)
He needs a drink!
Animals in Galleries
at Magazine Stands (possible tourist?)
The beautiful Basilica di San Marco
in St Mark's Square where people and pigeons flock together.
Elderly and oh so huggable!
The stunning Doge's Palace
I was happy to catch this shot of a gondolier taking a nap in the sun.
Great dog, great fangs :)
this turtle, bit more sprightly
than this one
My ride in a gondola
Hotel Excelsior on Lido, Venice is absolutely spectacular!
(and fair deals on rooms off season)
My mom at her best, enjoying life! It's hard not to in Italy :)
Happy Mother's Day Mom
I've had the most wonderful experiences with and because of you!
I hope we have the chance to travel together many more times!!
You are the best.
Hope everyone has a lovely Mother's Day weekend!
