It's a bit grey and dull here today so i decided to post a couple of pics of Burano, one of the islands off Venice, to cheer myself up!
The island of Burano lies in the northern part of the Venetian Lagoon, about 40 minutes from Venice by motorboat. It has a much different atmosphere from Murano or Venice's historic center, thanks to the Buranese custom of painting houses in bright colors--a tradition that may have had its origins in the color schemes of local fishing boats. Everywhere you look, you'll see houses clad in blue, green, pink, rose, lavender, purple, yellow, and other colors. And because Burano's houses tend to be small, the island has a cheerful coziness. It wouldn't be surprising if Burano were used as a model for a family resort at Disney World.
We are off to visit my sister in law later; she has two new Cavalier King Charles spaniel pups and I'm hoping to get some photos of them.
I enjoyed watching the lunar eclipse last night - seeing the moon that red shade was quite eerie! It's nearly time to collect S from her sleepover. Oh dear; will she be cranky today :(
Happy Birthday to Mick xxxx
