Venice, exploring and eating

Venice is a wonderful place to photograph and eat. We found many places off the beaten track and eat wonderful food. For the most part we wandered and were able to find great restaurants and many near
our hotel.

La Rosa Rossa was recommend by the folks at our hotel, Hotel Locanda Fiorita. It was a great recommendation for a restaurant with yummy food and wonderful house wine.

Wandering is so great in Venice

Venice, More Fun

Tuesday, August 25, 2015


I have always wanted to go to Venice. In a way I wasn't sure what to expect. We have all heard it is crowded with tourists and smelly water. There was a lot of tourists but there were places you could avoid big crowds and it really didn't smell. It was like another city. 

Venice is is like no other city I have been too. I just loved it. Every corner had an interesting thing to photograph. We constantly were lost but it lead us to some great restaurants and views.

More tomorrow!

Beaujolais Villages, a stop for Wine

We made a day trip to the area of France called Beaujolais Villages. This is a beautiful area of the country and is worth the trip. We stopped for wine tasting, food and the countryside. More photos soon

Lyon, Street Pics

The old and historic part of Lyon is fascinating and gave me endless subjects to photograph. Check out that cute kitty hanging out at a restaurant

One night there were several teens dancing and performing stunts. It was so fun to watch and there was lots of talent going around. There were video taping themselves dancing and doing so tough stunts. It was a pleasant surprise to catch them perform

Lyon, France, Trip, Summer 2015

We visited Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere on our first full day in Lyon. It was great we could take a vehicular subway car from the metro system to arrive at the Church. The church is way up on a hill and has great views. As always we had a snack after our trip to the Church. I will have more photos of the Church soon

These are some fun city shots of Lyon
