Italy South of Trieste, North of Venice
Viennese Escapes: Along the Adriatic Coast

People Watching
from the pier -
and where in the world
did the blue blanket's owner go?

Affogato al Caffé
Drowning a scoop of vanilla ice cream
in hot espresso, then spoon it up,
slowly, while sitting in the shade

  1. Consuming that coffee seems like a laudable occupations, as is the people watching.

  2. That coffee has me drooling. I love the bike against that wonderful wall. And I assume that the blue towel owner hopped over the edge. It doesn't look like too steep of a drop... or is it? :) Fine photos, one and all.

  3. Oh Merisi, the colors and atmosphere of these photographs have me yearning to find a way to climb into each scene. I would, of course, begin with the Affogato, then try to solve the mystery of the blue towel and fashion magazine, before giving that charming bicycle a spin.

    Lovely! xo

  4. She walked over to a kiosk where she bought a soft drink.

  5. That's an entirely different way of having ice cream!

  6. What's to say but thank you Merisi


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
