I returned a few days ago from an extended weekend trip to Venice. California not Italy. In truth, Venice, California will probably be as close to Venice, Italy as I ever get – Bucket List notwithstanding.
I don’t think you can fully appreciate a vacation that rewards you with morning and evening fog and cloudy days when temperatures do not rise above 65 degrees unless you’ve spent a thankless summer or two in the Southwestern deserts of the U.S. We’re still staring down the 100s this weekend, and I was ready for Autumn by mid-July.
Sunday afternoon the sun graced us with its presence starting at about 2 PM. We, along with quite a few others, sat on the beach watching the weekend slip below the horizon, and joined everyone in applause as it made a dramatic and graceful exit.
It’s the longest running show in history, never a repeat and a different ending every time. I never get tired of watching it.
