We arrived to a beautiful day in Venice. We got a boat from the Train Station to our hotel. Our room is tiny. Below our window is a major Gondola point and we hear them taking passengers and singing as they go past our window – very nice.

Today we went to the Cathedral in St Marco square. It is awesome with lots of gold mosaics and the mosaic floor is really interesting.

Trevor went to the top of the bell tower and had amazing views of Venice from there.

Venice is extremely busy with people – it has been the busiest place we have been to by far. Tomorrow we are going for a tour to three Islands Murano (where they make the beautiful glass), Burano (where they make lace) and Torcello.

It is quite humid here but it cools a bit at night. We are ready to get away from all the people.

I'm looking out on puddles while your windows looks on to the water & the Goldolas... Venice sounds wonderfull and exciting.How is the Queen going to get Grandad to take her there ???
Why did you not walk the bell tower with Trev?? have fun have a ride in a gondola for me ask him to sing as you go along. Your shopping bag will be getting full by now xxx
