Traipsing around Venice with friends on a cold November day (during an unforgettable trip to Italy) we took a boat out to the fishing island of Burano. On a dreary day this island lifted droopy spirits as everywhere we looked bright colors popped us. (Although how droopy can spirits be traipsing around Italy?)

Even Burano boats get a colorful coat (PURPLE!)

Bridges led from one colorful street to another…
…as we left a colorful sunset peeked out from the clouds.
grace, peace & colorful journeys

Scotland has Islands with the same colorful houses along the sea
Oh Kate, that sounds grand, too! Burano is an island fishing community- maybe bright color is something shared among these Scottish & Italian communities. Blessings! ☔️🌈☔️🌈☔️
So lovely — thanks for sharing them, Virginia!
How interesting that there’s so many colorful houses! It’s definitely not like that around here. I’ve only seen a few colorful homes and they amaze me every time I pass them. 🙂
These colorful houses definitely brightened a rainy day, Michelle. I’ve also seen bright colored homes in Austria & Slovenia. But even here in Williamsburg a bright blue or green (& one purple) house pops up every now & then. Weekend blessings!! 🌈🏠🌈
Loved the purple boat color.
Isn’t that purple boat grand? Didn’t notice it until opened file on computer screen – for this purple groupie, must be why I took pic! Blessings (& all things purple) Carol-Jo! ☂️☔️☂️☔️☂️☔️
So pretty the colored homes are – the pastel hues are just so soothing. I love pastels. A nice share and have a happy weekend ahead.
Hey GH – hope you are fully restored from all the hospital & health challenges SOON! You have a happy (& healthy) weekend, too! Big hugs!! 🌈☀️🤗🌟🌈
Thank you for your well wishes Virginia. You have a great weekend ahead too. Garfield Hugs!
Hope you’re doing much better now GH? Hugs! 🌟💜🤗💜🌟
Positive mind keeps me going! 😃💕
Thanks for the great emojis!!
Beautiful, your photos reminded me of Venice, we were there in 1988.
Hope you enjoyed your trip to Venice in 1988. I will never forget our visit in 2009! Ten years ago but colorful memories remain!🌟 🌈☀️🌈🌟
So beautiful Virginia I love all the gorgeous colors but especially the bright happy gliding pink! Thanks for sharing! Love ❤️ Joni
Thank you, Joni – the pink houses definitely brightened the dreary day of our visit. Was still loads of fun visiting, even in the rain! Blessings!!💖💨 ☔️💨💖
