The Campo Manin lion of Venice

Leslie's photo of the lion in Campo Manin made me instantly think of my visit with Maria in Venice last October. On my last night, Maria and I walked back from supper in Dorsoduro, through San Marco to the apartment in Canareggio. We stopped in Campo Manin, where Maria took this photo of me and the lion:

Great photo! You've got that "I love Italy" glow. :)

Anne:

Hey Annie, you're right! La dolce vita really does seep into one's soul in Italy, doesn't it? Italy sure makes my heart sing, that's for sure. Wish I had a trip on the horizon, but don't think I'll be able to swing one anytime soon. Oh well, the wait will just make it all the sweeter when I do return! (That's what I'll tell myself anyway!)

sandrac:

That really was a fantastic photo! You, the lion, the lights of the campo -- beautiful! What a great memory for you.

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Anne, great photo! I can imagine the two of you strolling along in Vencie and enjoying yourselves and it shows in your smile here.

Great photo! And what great memories to have. Thanks so much for sharing. Have a great day!

Anne:

Thanks Sandra and Kathy, definitely a wonderful memory! I so enjoyed meeting lovely Maria, and spending those days together.

Super photo -- yup, I recognize that la dolce vita look....m

Oh my stars!

Look at at that! Love it. :)

Anne:

Thank YOU, Leslie, for posting about Campo Manin and reminding me of this wonderful evening!!

This is a great photo. You look like you are have such a wonderful time. I love the joy that shines out.

Anne:

Thanks Marta, Maria and I had a wonderful time together in Venice. It was nice to meet one of my ST friends in person!

That is a very cool photo! I don't think I have seen that lion before.

Anne:

girasoli, I guess you'll have to go to Venice and see it in person then, won't you? Horrible as that sounds, I know... ;)

Eden:

I just love that photo. I have not been to your blog in a while... Shame on me. But I was thinking of you and wanted to wish you Happy Holidays... a lot late... so Happy New Year!!!

Anne:

Eden, I guess we are both behind the times, I just noticed I hadn't replied to you! (oops) Belated Happy New Year, hope you had a wonderful holiday!! :)
