Burano, originally uploaded by Peter Bardell.

I'm reporting to you as a tired but very happy girl from our cozy b& b in Venice. We just finished our day trips to the neighboring islands of murano and burano and they were spectacular. Did i forget to mention that we were planning a trip to Venice. Well, it was a surprise to me, too. Military man just decided on father's day that he wanted to go and to help him make it happen. So, i did...i'm a good wifey that way. i never imagined that i would love venice so much even with the large number of tourists around me. But even among the masses you can feel like you're the only one in the streets. Then, one of the little ones screech and i'm back out of la la land and helping to diffuse a small fire.

Even with our little fires here and there, i can say that we all love it, the little ones have been entertained with the glass blowers, parks, the waterways and daddy's new video camera for all the home movies he likes to take. but it's been boy wonder who's been most interested in our new toy. this truly is one of the most magnificent cities i have seen and the people are amongst the most happy i've encountered...lovely and friendly.

more to come...oops, the fire alarm just went off...
