The family and I have headed off for a little break in Venice, where it’s foggy and mystical this time of year. We’re staying in Sant’Elena, a quiet island a bit at the periphery, but still within walking distance of Piazza San Marco. It’s the island where my partner was born.
I’ll post more when I get a chance!
Although my credit card is a bit strained, I couldn’t stop myself buying the above D-Lux 5, which has come down in price, for the trip. Although I love my Nikon, I’m getting tired of lugging it around.
I’ll let you know how I get on, and if it was worth the money. If this little Leica can’t take good pictures in Venice, the most beautiful of cities, it truly will have been a bad buy!
For the last few weeks, and seal has taken up residence on the pier next to my parent’s house in Cooleen.
I think it’s a pup or perhaps just a small one. In any case, he’s very, very cute.
Naturally he’s not there all the time, but if you want a chance to see him, walk along the breakwater where the Fungie boats are parked. Look for the old wreck of a boat. The slip is just in front of it.
Let’s hope he sticks around!
