The Guggenheim

 Yesterday Robert had appointments in Venice so Leo and I went along for the ride. I have lived here for so many years and been to Venice countless times but had never made it to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection on the Grand Canal so yesterday, that was our project. We got their early enough for Robert to be able to come round and see most of the collection before having to scoot off to see teachers etc . I'm sure Venice is on most people's bucket list but even if it isn't, a trip to the Guggenheim is a must - it was absolutely fantatsic -we were amazed - we had no idea of how much art was there and how incredible it all is. Add it to that list.

Short detour on the way back as we got stuck in a mega traffic jam around Porto Garibaldi so came off and headed for a restauarnt on the beach for was perrrrrrferct.
