After we got to Murano... we went walking around. We found a small area that had a glass blowing demonstration. Then, I met a charming lady, who I found out lived in Venice (all her life), and she is the one that I asked where to find a place to eat for lunch.
While walking to the restaurant in our round-about way... we ended up walking down a street full of small gardens and large homes. The above post-office box was found at one such entrance. You can tell it is really old-- and a coat of arms??? When's the last time you saw that on a mail-box? I thought it had a lot of character.
|One of the gardens along this residential street that we found (while aimlessly looking for the restaurant while shopping and looking) Aren't those flowers wonderful?|
|Another garden pathway... If you notice the shadows along the sides... that's from sticking my camera lens through the wire holes of the fence. *I checked to see if anyone was watching before I did take the photos.|
|And, another yard with their own little patio area to the left.|
|My friend and I shared fresh grilled scallops. Wonderful!|
|We shared a platter of grilled veggies... Great tasting too.|
