Bridge of Sighs.

My Mate Al Vecio has arrived !

It didn't take very long for the sun to climb out of the clouds today.

My Gondolier poses for his first day on the job.

A magical day.

Super model Debbi poses & other models await their turn in the spotlight.

Every bridge offers an opportunity.

Know what I mean Harry?

Fresh Juice and a chance to sit , by this C15th hunchback supporting a set of steps, traditionally used to display a naked wrong-do'er.

The fish Market and later fruit & vegetable stalls remind me of Caroline.

Evidence that the city might well be sinking!

These simple towers pepper the skyline.

The Basilica dei Frari offered a breif respite from the cruel heat.

A sandwich & beer for lunch.

The famous Bridge if Sighs

Leading from the Dog'es Palace to the infamous Venice Prison.

A mere 40 Euros allowed us access to the interior of he bridge & the historic government buildings, of the Dog'es Palace.

The exterior of said Palace.

Another 7 mile explore brings us back to our hotel Flora.

Dinner tonight , at the Devils Forest pub, a pretty good burger and a lot of beer..

Hic! Goodnight dear reader xxx
