Thursday Doors: First Day in Venice

The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.

This is my second installment of doors my family and I discovered on a trip to Venice, Italy back in January 2020.

For the first full day of our adventure, we found an eclectic collection of doors.  I hope you enjoy!

Thank you for stopping by.  Next week,  I’ll feature doors we discovered along the canals of Venice.  Stay safe, stay well!

If you would like to see more doors from all around the globe, visit Norm’s.

    Lovely finds. I had never considered where they would be getting their fresh water from but considering they’re surrounded by salt water I guess wells is the logical answer.
    Thanks for the tour and the education 😉

    1. You’re very welcome! =) There are people who visit Venice looking for the wells. I didn’t think about the significance of the wells until after we returned and then looked it up.

    A delightful post Brenda! You you were here right before the travel limits:):) Many moons ago, in my twenties we stayed in Copper and went by boat for a day to Venice.Much too short! That’s an interesting side of Venice I’ve never thought of. Didn’t know they had sweet water wells in this city.The brown door is beautiful, but also like the green door’s design, even though damaged. Thanks for looking me up! Am on a writing binge, and on Thurs. there are 4 other challenges, so not enough time! Have an enjoyable weekend:)

    1. I know what you mean about a writing binge. I enjoy writing I get consumed with it sometimes. During this time of staying in, it has been a good thing for me to focus on. Enjoy your weekend as well and happy writing!!
