We were greeted with different weather. But, it’s still relatively mild.

I love the gondoliers in their blue coats. I have a favourite photo of the most pissed-off-looking gondolier ever.

Still looks lovely in the rain, A young friend of mine is arriving tomorrow, hope Venice weather picks up a bit
It was sunny today, I’m not sure what tomorrow will bring, Julie.
So how’s the weather where you are, then? 🙂
Hah! Today, the sun is shining, Bun. 🙂
Really? Ah, you got me! 🙂
Those last two pictures are nicely juxtaposed
Thank you, I did choose them deliberately, Derrick.
I’m sure you did, Yvonne. Well done
We are hearing from friends everywhere how mild the winter is. My friend in Norway said it was quite hot, at 7 degrees C! Happy New Year.
I keep expecting us to get the icy bora that blows in from Trieste, any day now. It’s about 2 C right now, I think.
I’m in Hawaii and it’s a balmy 24 degrees. Just beautiful.
Are you getting a suntan?
No, I’m not a suntan kind of girl, but I am getting lots of excellent food, great scenery and good wine. Justin Beaver is enjoying himself immensely.
I’ve only been following your blog for a week and already I take your fabulous photos for granted. The orange umbrellas juxtaposed against the gray day, the blue rain coats that matched the pavers, how do you do it?!?! You must have your camera with you 24/7, thinking only of us, your devoted followers.
That made me chuckle, Judy. I wish you could have seen me scurry from the front windows to the back part of the apartment to fetch my camera, hoping I wouldn’t drop it or something equally disastrous! And, thank you for your nice comments, Judy.
And here it is hot – sigh!
I haven’t missed being away from Australia during this hot part of the year, Julie.
Great you are almost a human again. Is this new post of yours going to be a 365 day of the new year thing or are you going to go back to being normal? Either way I look forward to each day in expectation.
You and your ESP! As I wrote the title for the second post, I thought “Now, this has to stop!” So, back to random stuff. It’s nice to have you aboard, John.

Thanks for all the little bits. They surely add up
Just back from Mexico and sorry to hear you have been sick! Sending best wishes. Xo
Hi, Sue. So you escaped the snow for a while, eh? What part of Mexico did you go to? (I’ll bet I find out when I go to the Reader later today.) ❤
Haven’t posted anything yet Yvonne but we were north of Puerto Vallarta. A lovely spot on the Pacific.
Nice day for ducks Yvonne and it’s trying to rain here in southern Spain….. trying ! 😀 ❤
Would you like some rain? And wind? I was rudely awakened during the night by the crash of poorly latched shutters. It sounded like the whole apartment building was collapsing! ❤
Oh heck ! I’ll make sure mine are closed properly tonight. Sorry I woke you ! 😉
Those blue people. What a great photo. I think they are considering visiting Australia next winter. You can tell they are discussing Queensland as an option, with their outspread arms, talking about the size of the butter-nut pumpkins.
If they’re heading for the Innisfail/Tully region, they’d better pack those ponchos, and gum-boots, eh?
Thank you for sharing the view out your window. My favorite is the double orange umbrellas!
There was a small ocean of umbrellas passing below my window.
Are the bottom 2 statues or real people? A statue erected to honour the wet Venetian winter?

They’re a couple of props I ran down and planted in the campo! 🙂 No, they’re real live, well-prepared people, enjoying the rain.
Dang. I preferred the statue idea. Was Campo in Last of the Summer Wine?
Oh, crumbs, it could well have been, Andrew. Someone far more knowledgeable about such things will surely be along to tell us.
Yvonne the weather everywhere is so unpredictable ,best say full of surprises
That’s for sure, Janet.
Starting the new year right with your lovely photos keep them coming
Just for you, Joanne. 🙂
No such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes. [Try telling that to the people of Cumbria, York, Argentina and America’s Mid-West.] The third photo looks like one of a pair of statues as they are almost monochrome. And what an eye for a photo you have with the second one!
Thank you, Bert. It was almost as though they were in the script of my movie!
A few hundred miles to the north of you, it’s equally horrid. If that’s any consolation…
I wish you’d get some nice sunshine, lotc.
I will, once I get back to Spain 😉
Nothing like a good rain to freshen up the calli and campi, not to mention providing those beautiful reflections! I hope you’re feeling better Y.
Good morning, Susie. I’m feeling almost human again. Yes, it looks very pretty out there on the campo.
