ICE ICE BABY

As we watch the cruise ships start their northerly migration in front of our house, I reflect to a  few years back when we took a cruise to Alaska- while I didn't enjoy the cruise itself {you and 2,000 of your new best friends}- I most certainly enjoyed the scenery. I was awestruck. 

Here's why...

HAMPTON GETAWAY

Not too long ago, we took a trip to the Hamptons (not something us west coasters do generally). We had a great time (ignoring mosquitoes).

We relaxed, played on the beach, wandered through vineyards, a sculpture park, shopped, and ate, ate, ate.


we started our drive from NYC

view from the house we were staying at- our hosts and pals Joe and his folks






I loved this shot with the shadows playing on the worn pathway









with a stop at Macari Vineyards




The entrance to the sculpture park (not sure it even had a name)






We had a couple of friendly horses in a nearby pasture 'hang out' with us for a while.




I leave you with this...

ONLY IN VENEZIA

Several years ago we took a trip to Italy. I was just going through the photos again and decided I needed to share. Venice is such a grand experience.
Here are some photos I'd like to share with you. 

This post isn't about the gondolas or the beauty that the average tourist might see (although there's plenty of that there to see). This is about the elegant decay of Venice- tragic really.



Have you been to Venezia? What's your take away? 

I personally can't wait to go back.










If you've never been- I suggest you take the trek before there is no more Venice.
