Venice, the Dolomites and Dublin

Stewart and I were recently in Venice to see my cousin Shannon, her husband David, and her daughter Madison.  Always good to see family, to catch up on their lives and to have some fun along the way.  My sister Lori and her husband Karl then arrived, and we spent another day with them.  A rare photo of Lori and me: 

We then traveled to the Dolomites in Northern Italy.   It's a UNESCO world heritage site, and pretty darn deserving of that accolade.  One spectacular view after another, one lush and manicured farm after another, one towering mountain next to a lake after another.  And then we headed to Dublin, to check it out with a view of moving there next year.  Quite a neat city, and an equally beautiful country.
