My time is almost over

After 6 weeks here, I'm down to the "last Saturday, last Sunday, last ....."

Today, we head for Mazzorbo, for the Easter mass at Santa Caterina. I was told, on good authority, that it's the best in Italy!

Here's the link to my blog for some of the highlghts of my time here:

Thank you, I have enjoyed reading your blog. I wish I could spend 6 weeks in Venice.

Yvonne - Thank you, thank you. Yours was the website I was trying to find for a relative going to Venice and I no longer had the bookmark!
Love the "Cast in Stone" section!

cafegoddess, the darn blog has become the master on this trip! It's such a wonderful experience to spend a long time in Venice, for sure.

travelfan1, you must have followed the link to A Lover of Venice. Isn't his website wonderful!

And now, this sad and sorry Venice tragic has been home a few days. But, I can relive some of the tale through my blog. (Poor me!)

I'm sorry I didn't get to that Fodor's GTG with ellenem, maybe next time.

Yvonne, Love the cross body bag you are wearing in the picture. Can you tell me the brand? I'm looking for one for my upcoming trip. Thanks.

Hi, gh21, it's a Hedgren Urban bag. It's nice and light, has several zippered compartments. It easily carries my camera, Moleskine Venezia journal, wallet, etc. It has a little zippered pocket on the strap for your mobile phone. On the way home, I tuck my Kindle into the back pocket.

Wow, I've never been asked for 'fashion' advice before!

annhig, I was just reading ellenem's excellent report, and see you plan to visit Piazzale Michelangelo. When you climb the final steps to Chiesa San Miniato, please stop and go into the cemetery which is on the right hand side. There is a sculpture there, near the gate, of a mother with her cape extended to protect her children .. so moving. (I've hinted to my offspring about fitting tributes to a mother, to no avail. They don't make kids like they used to!)

Hi yvonne - thanks for the tip. Not sure why i've never been up to the piazzale before but I'm meaning to remedy that this time. i confess that I will probably get the bus up and walk back!
