We ended our trip to Italy in Venice, a very beautiful and apparently popular city to visit. It was very crowded. We were told that Venice averages 50,000 tourists a day! Fortunately, once you got away from St. Marks Square, there seemed to be plenty of room to move about and explore. And if you got up early in the morning, St. Marks Square was occupied only by pidgeons.
The opening photo is of the famous Rialto Bridge. I believe it was the very first bridge built in Venice.

On our recent trip to Italy, we spent 3 wonderful days in Tuscany. One of the things I wanted to photograph were the beautiful red poppies. Unfortunately, the picture above shows the only field of poppies we saw. We came to learn that we were about 2 to 3 weeks early for the height of the poppy season. Oh well, it was still very nice in Tuscany.
