Venice Day 1

And so the first holiday of the year and off to Venice. The flight out was surprisingly straightforward. Bags were dropped at the hotel and off we went.

A fairly common Venetian scene.




The campanile in St Mark's square


The Square

The Basilica




The view to San Giorgio's, we had our first coffee looking out there!








Yellow Legged Gull


Bridge of Sighs






Getting brighter!
















back to St Mark's







And so the first day was over...

The Claydon Castaway an update

Some of you may remember that almost two years ago I went to Claydon House to meet a soft toy that had been left behind at Claydon House.



I realise that I totally forgot to tell you that the Castaway was eventually returned to his home!

YAY!

Greys Court

Well yesterday morning I wended my way home from Venice where it was sunny and warm!

As we waited for the water bus for the airport a Little Egret flew in!! Look where he was!!


The Rialto boat station!!




So that was Italy.... I will be posting pics over the next week....

Anyhow Trish has brought me home and we came via Greys Court....

Greys Court is a tudor manor house with the remains of a medieval castle in the grounds (you can see today the fortified tower). For me the highlight is its delightful garden.
