Down a little calle in Dorsoduro

You never know what treasures you’ll find peeking back at you.

This isn’t far from Chiesa Salute, heading back towards the Accademia Bridge.





It seems that some little bird has found a place to build a nest

This is not from Venice, but from Vancouver Island, Canada.


Thank you, Rick

    I hope Pam D might read this. “Summertime” is set all over Venice, but the Pensione where June (KH) stays is in Dorsoduro most of the time, though the sign was in San Marco! See for further details.


  2. You stayed in a nice part of Venice, Pam. It’s a wonderful city, isn’t it!


    • Pam D

      Yes Dorsoduro &Venezia lived up to our expectations &more had an appartment on fordomentta gheradini just passed Sinor Blum&veggie boat since coming home had to watch 24/7 Venice just waiting to buy Summertime been told it is set in Dosoduro some of the scenes do you know of a reputable shop which sells st marks lion pendent


      • Sorry, I can’t tell you where you might buy a pendant with the lion on it. I guess it depends on your budget; either a jeweler or a good souvenir shop. You’ll find plenty of either all around the city.


  3. I would never have guessed that location! Thanks for sharing! 🙂


    • People ask what there is to do and see in Venice for 1,2,3 days. It would break my heart to only be able to spend such a short time there, so I count my blessings, and am happy to share. 🙂


      • Yet one to three days is better than none. For me they are a memory of a lifetime. 🙂 I agree more would have been better. 🙂

        2 weeks we stayed early this year we would have loved to stay longer planning our return dosudoro was home for the stay so much still to discover Venetian people are so welcoming venezia has a heart best time to visit for us was week after carnavale


  4. One of the many things I love about our beloved Venezia….always something interesting just around the corner or down the calle.
    And you know me….butterflies are my favorite…after cats that is.

    That second little cherub looks very uncomfortable. Do you think he started life somewhere in a more vertical position? i.e. sitting rather than reclining.


    • Could very well be, Andrew. And, I need to look more closely at his right hand next time. There’s always something else to check on, thank goodness! (Hmm, there’s site on Facebook that is using an image VERY like the one in the second photo.)


  6. Ciao, Shell! How are things down in our state capital? It’s looking like another mild winter up here. Cheers. 🙂


  7. Beautiful scenes, that’s for sure. I especially love the little bird’s nest tucked in there. Have a gorgeous weekend, bella!


  8. Hi, Joanne, and thanks for your nice words. I love the image of butterflies carrying little lunch boxes. They could swap their lunches if their mom had packed something they didn’t like. 🙂
