Our “Get out of the Cold” Vacation – Italy (Day 4)

We spent the fourth day (Thursday, January 14th) of our Florida vacation at Epcot. Epcot is divided into two parts: Future World and World Showcase. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I will be sharing with you our visit at World Showcase over the next several days. Earlier I shared with you our visit to Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Morocco, Japan and the American Adventure. This blog post contains photographs from our visit to Italy.

Perhaps I should have been looking the other way and taking a picture of whatever the man was photographing. This woman’s hat caught my attention. I didn’t even notice her expression or the photographer in the background until I uploaded the picture to my computer.

Note the two columns. On top of the right column is St. Mark the Evangelist. On top of the left column is the lion that is the saint’s companion and Venice’s guardian.

I retrieved a photograph from my archives. When we visited Italy in April 2001, a masked lady took a special liking to Bob.

    Happen to come by your Blog, since I noticed your from up North here in PA.Your photo's of Disney World are always nice to see. We went down there for the 4th time this past October. As always, we have a great time. I think that it was on our 3rd trip there that we walked around all the different Country's in Epcot. It was enjoyable, but a bit tiring for us. As you well know, it's allot of walking down there.We always stay at the Disney All-Star Music Resort. My favorite place is Epcot. So much to see and do. SeaWorld is nice, also, but this time we were not too pleased with it. Most of the attractions were closed. Why, I don't know.We have been talking about going back down there to see the Christmas Decorations in late November. We are told that Disney is so pretty all lite up for Christmas.Nice to meet you. Hope you enjoy Disney like we do.LesReading, PA

    Ooh! Did you take a gondola ride?? Too bad that dessert cart wasn't mobile – I LOVED IT! What amazing colors! Now that I no longer travel 😦 I enjoy your posts even more!
