Favorites…

It is almost time for another trip and I find that I never really wound up the previous one. Last October we went to Umbria and Venice. I was telling the tale here and then the holidays happened, life got busy, there were family complications and I never got back to the thread of the story of our trip. Last week I went back to look at the pictures and decided to pick out a few of my favorites that I had not ever processed in order to apply a few apps to them. I came across a group that symbolized our week in Venice. They are my favorites of the experience of Venice because I took them from our second floor apartment window where we looked across at the Frari Church and down onto the small canal below the window. Every day around 4:00 two gondolas would appear and the gondoliers would discuss their price with customers. On the last afternoon we were there we succumbed and took our own ride. I loved Venice…

Three-bridge day…

Last Tuesday was a three-bridge day as we traveled over to Corte Madera for a retirement party for TM’s boss. He wanted to take the route through San Francisco and then come back by the Richmond Bridge. I got a new app, so the pictures got its treatment (except for the cake…had to show that it in natural form because it was so delish…
Over the Bay Bridge…

(That is a view of San Quentin and the Richmond Bridge.)
The garden was a riot of roses and other beautifully blooming plants…

I was having myself some Georgia O’Keeffe moments while the staff (most of whom had been with the boss for twenty-five years) ate cake…

That would be mango mousse and chocolate something…I do admit I had a little of each…had to mark the end of the quarter century with the rest of them…and then home over the third bridge…
