First, I wanted to let everyone know that we had to add word verification to the comments on my blog. The Slow Travel blogs were getting bombarded with spam which made things go funky.
The good news is that it's (hopefully) a user-friendly verification, not one of those blurry hard-to-decipher codes. Under my comment box, you simply type my name (Annie). I'm very grateful to everyone who visits my blog and takes the time to leave comments, so I'm glad that Kim from Slow Travel was able to come up with a solution that should be easy and painless. Please let me know if you have any problems!
So J is for Jurassic, the age of dinosaurs and also the name of a cool little store in Venice.
This shop sells fossils, stones, crystals, and jewelry. I'm not a rock collector, but I do enjoy looking at them. But what really attracted me to this place were the swirly spiral fossils on the sign and also in the window.
They reminded me of the fossils that I love to look for when I visit the churches in Venice. These fossils are embedded in the marble floors and are fun to find. This particular one is in the church of Angelo Raffaele (dedicated to Archangel Raphael).
