Venice – Return of the Magnificent Seven

Just returned form the latest Venice trip. We were lucky enough to have great weather for the 4 days with sunshine, meals sat out at restaurants in the evenings and even mosquitos to contend with at night. A new hotel was used this year which may well become a regular feature for future trips. The magnificent seven for this trip were Will, Helen, Ted, Dominic, Roy, Heather and Myself. Already have 2 bookings for next years trip. Check out the web site for the latest dates to be announced shortly.IMG_0463

Canon 700D

Received this stunning picture of a crane recently from Mary Ann Blackmore. She came on a 1-2-1 day and after discussing some new cameras went out and bought the Canon 700D. This was one of her first shots on the new camera. Well done Mary Anne.IMG_0273 2
