I didn't get back from our trip until late on Sunday, so didn't get chance to post, despite having picked out one of my favourite pictures from our trip. So please accept this double entry this week, and hopefully I will also do a separate post with some more pictures from our travels.
After Paris, we travelled on to Venice for a few days. We wandered around the tiny streets, enjoying getting lost and chancing upon views like this. We had been trying to cross back over the Grand Canal, and whilst this particular road didn't lead us across the water, it did provide a fabulous quiet jetty to stand for a few moments and enjoy this incredible city, savour the magic of turning a corner and finding crystal clear water lapping against buildings and boats transporting people from place to place.
The week at home since our trip has managed to retain the air of celebration, despite The Husband and I returning to work. On Friday, we went to Manchester House as my parents had treated us to a meal there for one of my birthday presents. We tried the eight course Tasting Menu, and had a wonderful meal. This was our beautiful, and delicious dessert.
