Beautiful day in Venice. (#11)

Today no rain until this evening when all of a sudden we had a big thunder boomer, then a downpour and then rain! Even the big turtle in the garden below was running for cover. (we think those people eat them as there were two turtles, now one).

This morning we had some light fog. I like my photo of Salute church in a little fog!

My favorite puppy -- Mia, the Stafordshire Bull Terrier (4 months).

I wanted to show some of the different and unique chimneys here. Those have some spiral thing inside that helps to put out the cinders before they get outside. These were for the times when there were lots of wood houses around.

This chimney is across from our apartment and is practically a work of art!

This one is kind of pretty.

And who lives in this upstairs room??

This looks giant sized!

This is across the canal from our apartment on a nice building.

This is on "our" canal.

Wanted to also show how we do washing. Washing machines are small. Electricity is very expensive in Italy. No dryers so everything either dries outside on the line or inside by the radiators.

Our little washing machine is in the bathroom. We don't use it but wash by hand and hang out.

Our balcony.

When it is rainy it may be better drip drying in the shower!
