Dancing along to the buskers

Playing with the necklace that our Bologna ward gave to Taryn as a gift

Yesterday we enjoyed the sun, cool breezes and the smell of the ocean in Venice. It was a wonderful day as we walked down the Zattere. We thought about how in just a few days, we would be smelling the ocean and feeling the breeze all the way in California.

We saw:
The Jewish Ghetto
Ponte di Rialto
Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari
Santa Maria della Salute

We took the city at our own pace, Tyson was the master navigator and got us to all the places I had written down to see, and Taryn got in two naps in her stroller. We ate gelato a few times, got a little sun-burned (only Tys & I - Taryn was sun blocked up!) and took in the beauty of the city while strolling along. 

It was a perfect ending to our trips here in Italy (for now!). Now, we will take a break today and tomorrow to be with friends, catch up on sleep, finish up some last minute things on our to-do list, enjoy Bologna, and get ready to leave on Thursday.We started the day off today with a family dance party. Perfect.

P.S- We had another earthquake this morning at 9am! We were all in the kitchen when we felt it start. Still scary.
