Mother's Day in Venice
Sailing into Venice; One can never sail into Venice too many times. Feast your eyes. So many boats and ships and water taxis!
And then the larger buildings appear surrounded by waterways everywhere.
And the only way to move is on foot or on a boat.
We just left the ship and walked around. Just popped into a church and there was a string concert inside. We took a pew and sat there; soloists etc. It was magnificent. A Mother's Day to be remembered!
The church itself was just a marvel and then to listen to Bach, Handel and others was a real treat. We made our donation on the way out. The musicians were all ages and all playing abilities. But a concert not to be missed.
