Snapshots & Whatnot: Colorful Journey(s)

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!)

“Colors are the friends of their neighbors and the lovers of their opposites.” Marc Chagall

Bridges led from one colorful street to another…

…as we left a colorful sunset peeked out from the clouds.

grace, peace & colorful journeys

      Oh Kate, that sounds grand, too! Burano is an island fishing community- maybe bright color is something shared among these Scottish & Italian communities. Blessings! β˜”οΈπŸŒˆβ˜”οΈπŸŒˆβ˜”οΈ

    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. πŸ™‚

      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!! 🌈🏠🌈

      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! β˜‚οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜‚οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜‚οΈβ˜”οΈ

    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.

    Beautiful, your photos reminded me of Venice, we were there in 1988.

    • Virginia says:

      Hope you enjoyed your trip to Venice in 1988. I will never forget our visit in 2009! Ten years ago but colorful memories remain!🌟 πŸŒˆβ˜€οΈπŸŒˆπŸŒŸ

      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!!πŸ’–πŸ’¨ β˜”οΈπŸ’¨πŸ’–
