Here are some photos. We had a bit of a scare at the photo shop as one of the memory cards no longer works.....don't know who is to blame but any ways....the pictures were not lost, only a memory chip fatality. Enjoy the photos, we haven't left for Venice yet, decided tomorrow is better.

Talk to you all soon,

Hope all is well at home
