Buon Giorno Venezia

 Bear is back from Venezia today and wants to share his adventuras with you!BEAR adoro San Marco. What's not to love?
And Italian gelato! Absolutemente perfecto! Ahhhh pistache Bronte... BEAR, being French (permesso Parisien) has expensive tastes it seems...ahem
So we go to Caffe Florian...
Perfecto!
BEAR is crazy for Italian fashion.

The 'wrinkled look' is perfect for the traveler.

Non e vero?

SUPER PERFETO!
:)
BEAR spots his first Venetian dog...
On the vaporetto #1 Bear spots his first true Venetian...

You can tell by the complicated boots.
Venezia te adoro!
BUON GIORNO VENEZIA!

Oh my dear it all looks divine. I hope you had the best time and I can't wait to hear. Venice is a world apart.

I love Paris....but I adore Venezia!!

Carol you are so right about the 'complicated' boots that Venetian women wear.
So glad you had a wonderful time in Venice.
What was your favorite Venetian experience??

Vickie said...

I'm so sorry we weren't able to meet in Paris, but it sure looks as though you had a magnificent time in Venice. I will add it to my bucket list! Rose the Rat Terrier sends her regards to you and Bear!

looks like the weather was great as well.

Catherine said...

Thank for taking us along! I wish I was having a pistachio gelato too (and not sitting in a cubicle!) I adore my memories of Venice, and all of Italy.

Steve and I just took photos at Caffe Florian. ;-)

Ciao

That photo of Bear in the scarf is priceless.

Naturellement, now that you're back in the City of Light, the rain has come back and it's brrrrr cold. I think Bear is going to need the scarf.

Ciao ciao

Oh, how wonderful - Bear did get to take a gondola ride! I was so hoping he'd do that.


Delightful pictures. I spent one day in Venice a few years ago and this brings back wonderful memories.


Enjoy!

Ahhh, Venezia.
So happy you and Bear are accessible once again. I agree; Bear looks like quite the gentleman in that scarf.
Did you paint while in Venice?
huh? huh?

Bear, swathed in his Venetian scarf, certainly brightened my morning! Ah! Venice - one of my favorite places.

Amy said...

Yay! You're back! That photo of Bear in the scarf cracked me up. Venice looks amazing. Did you hear music in San Marco?

Nikon said...

Great photos of a great spot. You had sunshine, too! (Three days of rain for me.)
Bear looks like he had a ball :) I hope that you did, too!
The gelato is fabulous in Italy.
I'm glad that the "rumpled" look is in style - I will be fashionable now....

Sweet Freak said...

You are so fabulous - I love that you're in Venice & can't wait to hear all about it!

Paul Bailey said...

I hope you post some Venice watercolors. Love your work

Giulia said...

So glad you guys had a great time. I was just planning to go to the big Canaletto exhibit here & thought to pop over & see if you had a post. Ecco.

baci

Dianne said...

Bonjour Carol- I just knew Bear would love Venice - he is really loving the class and style of the Venitians and he looks so contented -perhaps that's all those little trips to posh eateries!! Non!

marilyn said...

bear has exquisite taste! i love venice & in may i am excited to say i get to find out just how much i love paris!

Frances said...

Carol, it is delightful see how much fun you and Bear have had in glorious Venice.

The photo of B with his stripes wrapped up in various designs is very charming. How did you get him to sit still long enough for that pose?

I look forward to hearing more about your journeys.

Gwen said...

Charming signs and gelato shops...and the flavors! Looking forward to your Venice and Paris posts.

Elizabeth Bessel said...

Oh Bear, I want to travel with you.

Simony said...

My heart skips a beat every time I see photos of daily life in Italy.
How I wish I could live there!
