Hello, Friends! Just checking in for a bit from our hotel. Yesterday was sunny (but cold!) and we packed in as much sightseeing as we could, because we knew today’s forecast was rain, rain, rain.

Today, we were less ambitious. We pulled on our wellies, bought 3 cheapie umbrellas, and visited the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Then spent the afternoon keeping warm and dry in our hotel — we had a junk food picnic and watched a movie while June napped. : ) Tomorrow, we’re hoping to visit some of the Lagoon islands.

Mostly, we keep marveling at how often we gasp when we turn a corner. Venice is spectacular in any kind of weather.

How is January treating you so far?

P.S. — I’m taking lots of photos on instagram (like the shot above) if you’d like to follow along.
