We had a nice day with our friend and guest Momo. We slept in this morning as we were very tired after our late night "drive". Once we arrived in Italy we all crashed out, waking just in time for a bowl of cafe latte before settling down for our afternoon nap.
Once we were caught up on our sleep, we decided it was time to head off in search of fun; it isn't every day that your friend from Australia comes for a visit! We asked Momo where she would like go and there was only one place that she had mind, the most romantic, beautiful city in all of the world. VENICE!
We piled into the flying van and in no time we were arriving in La Serenissima. Since we had just been in Venice during carnival, we decide to skip the tourist sites and instead hang out in San Marco's Square while sipping warm milk and watching the crowds. It was a beautiful, warm day and we enjoyed the sounds of the orchestra as the Italian sun slowly sank into the rose colored waters of the lagoon.
As many of you know, San Marco's Square has a bit of pigeon problem which is made worse by the tourists who insist on feeding the obnoxious birds. The flocks of pigeons turned out to be too much for Roscoe and Momo to resist. They spent a little time chasing the birds around the square until they came to realize that they were outnumbered by stubborn birds that had no plans on leaving.
With twilight approaching, we decided it was time to be heading back home, but Momo had a little surprise for us.
She took us on a gondola ride through the dark waters of Venice's canal. It wasn't long before the moon was smiling down upon us from a velvet canvas, sprinkled with twinkling diamonds.
When our ride was complete, we headed back home in the magic, flying van....
