I am happily retired and enjoying life with my DH Jerry. We have a wonderful daughter, SIL, and two of the world's greatest grandchildren. I enjoy photography, digital scrapping, genealogy, and singing in the choir.
After leaving St. Mark's, we pass the lovely Church of Santa Maria del Giglio and cross the Grand Canal on a small trahgetto gondola ferry. Walking toward the end of the island, we visit the octagonal-shaped Church of Santa Maria della Salute (St. Mary of Health), built in the 17th century following the lifting of a Black Death plague. It contains exquisite gold altars with painted glass and gemstones. At the tip of the island is the Dogana del Mar, the 17th Century customs house that is now an art museum. As we walk back through the city toward the Zaterre shuttle stop, we notice some everyday scenes, like boats at the gas station, boat building, UPS-delivery Venice-style, ambulance, locks of love on the Accademia Bridge, laundry day, and tile layers at work.
