Venice Baby!!! Part 2

Approaching Saint Marc's
We had lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe. I've never been to one before, but the food was really incredible! I had a mushroom-swiss burger and it was the best burger of my LIFE! And the most expensive, lol!
Bella loved the coloring!
This vest of Keith Richard's was realllllly tiny! He must have been so thin!
I wasn't able to take all the pictures I wanted to, but the shop displays were amazing! So many blown glass treasures everywhere!!!
This shop had just blown glass light fixtures!
Truly artwork!
The dazzling colors and gold leafing is a visual feast!
I soooo want one of these watches!
Blown glass beads and jewelry.
Upscale jewelry store - lots of sparkly diamonds!!!
CANDY!!! And I want it all, lol!
Isn't this delicious looking???
This is gorgeous with pink gold too!
Purple goodies!
Pearls are my favorites!

You see this style of figurines everywhere!
The most gorgeous masks too.
Some Dolce & Gabbana
This looks like a really elegant hotel

Riolto Bridge
I was always so tickled to see steps leading up to the water's edge everywhere!

Venice is soooo much larger than I thought, and we only saw a small part of it. So we will be visiting again very soon, and many times over!! And The Bella WILL be getting her gondola ride, lol!

You do love me to snap a picture of Dolce and Gabbana! LOL I love it! That jewelry was amazing. Hard Rocks are so cool. I have tee shorts from Vegas and Amsterdam. If I see one I get a shirt! As for Keith Richards well cocaine has a habit of making people skinny! Venice was beautiful thanks for all the loveliness this morning!

Beautiful pictures of St. Marc's. It sure looks like you had a nice day for this trip. Great shots all around.

I've been to a couple of Hard Rock Cafe' in Atlantic City and one in Cleveland. They have some pretty cool stuff. Marty has been to lots more and he's bought shot glasses and other collectibles from each one. (i have them here) I bought myself a set of drumsticks at the one in Cleveland. (i'll have to take a picture of them sometime to show you) :)

Looks like Bella had a lot of fun feeding and chasing the pigeons. Love that giggle. :)

Thanks again for sharing all of your pictures. What a treat!

I love looking at all the impressive! You make me want to visit Venice even more now! My hubby was stationed in Vicenza when he was in the Army and has told me many times that I'd love Venice. Hope to get there some day!

Oh my god I loved the vid with Bella and the birds! Her laugh is adorable and I can't believe how long her braid is!!!
