I found this spot while wandering around the back streets of Venice, trying to escape “the tourists” [ you know, all those “other ones!”] The gull was actually in the shot, but I wonder if I should add a few more…

And incidentally, has anyone seen this film? [ The Tourist ] I missed it!! Cannot WAIT for it to be released on Netflix!!

    Wow !!! wonderful Dawne !!! Reminds me my first visit of Venice, it was the football wold cup and everybody was inside looking at the Tv, so Venice was totally desert and I had it all for myself !!!!

  • How is it, Dominique, you are the only man I know who is rich, handsome, intelligent, talented, lives in the South of France , aaaand, gets Venice all to himself?????? It must be your Ange!!!!

    But I will tell you, I took a group of students to Venice in 1999, and due to a bad plane connection we missed our tour day, arriving well late into the afternoon. The tour guide felt very bad, and to make up for it, fixed it with his friend to take us on an extra-long gondola ride down the Grand Canal late at night. We were the only ones out there! Yup. Very romantic. Me and a hoard of teen-agers!!!!

    Thank you, my friend. We have so many stories to share someday!!!!
