Day 5 the Grand canal and back to Burano tasters

We went to the Rialto market this morning and then took a ride down the grand canal.

We then had a coffee and got another boat to Burano. The weather was glorious!

Venice day 4 -Torcello and Murano tasters

And finally the sun came out!!

So off to Torcello. It is very small but you can get off the beaten track and hear birdsong, lots of blackcaps!

We had an alfresco lunch with prosecco and then headed to Murano famed for its glass.

Claremont, Box Hill and Warnham

There are a few NT places I've never been down here and so off to Claremont Landscape Gardens

Claremont feature the works of Bridgeman, Capability Brown, Kent and Vanburgh.


And onto Box Hill. The scone was not duck worthy :(

We popped into Warnham Tricia's local patch where she hadn't seen a Lesser Redpoll all winter.... guess what I found :D

Tomorrow's blog will be shorter and uh different :D
