About Me.

A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.

April 26 V is for Venice


This ancient city, built on canals is amazing. We spent four days there and didn't see all of it. Walkways, just wide enough for the trolleys, used for delivering goods, wind their way through the city, taking you over canals and into plazas. Sometimes you find something unexpected, like a shady oasis of cool green lawn and trees, with inviting benches beckoning. Other time, quaint shops and cafes surprise you.  Below are two different scenes of Venice.  The top one is taken in a residential area, with their boats parked like we park our cars. The bottom one is looking back across the Grand Canal to St Mark's. This is a very busy waterway, with boats of all types, from taxies to the police, using it.

Bye for now,


  1. Beautiful - definitely on the bucket list!

  2. Your two Venetian posts have brought back happy memories of our visits.

  3. I'd love to go there one day. The city fascinates me.
