Ah, Venezia

If you asked me to name a special birthday -
In 2003 Jim and I spent the month of July in Venice.

We rented a small charming artist's apartment near the Arsenale, rode a vaporetto to our Italian classes at the Instituto de Venezia every day, saw every exhibit at the Biennale and danced in San Marco Square under the stars. We just basked in the magical atmosphere that envelops Venice

On my birthday Jim took me for a drink at the fabled Harry's Bar and for High Tea at the legendary Florian's Cafe which faces onto San Marco Square.

It was the best of times.

In a city we both loved - from our first trip there in 1977 to - - this very day.
