Sunday pictures

A beautiful Summer day just received news from Rome where friends attended an event at the Canadian Club of Rome (CCR). Here I am sitting on my balcony in Ottawa looking at the Canal and thinking of those days in Italy. We could have gone to the Villa Borghese to walk in the gardens all the way to the Belvedere to see all of Rome at our feet or met friends for Sunday lunch and a little Passeggiata.

A photo taken by our friend Anna Ambrosini just 3 days ago from the roof garden of Hotel Locarno in the old centre of the Città.

   The church dome on the left is one of the two churches which stand guard at the entrance to Piazza del Popolo. Right top the two towers are part of the French Academy in Rome, Palazzo Medici.

Three dachshunds wire hair not our Nicky or Nora but cousins.

One of the many Fontanella il nasone fountain in Rome, Nora loved them and would often put her entire head under the very cold water. Very good clean water to drink comes to Rome carried by the ancient aqueducts.

  3. Nice to think of those ancient aqueducts still doing their job after all those centuries. The Romans built things to last!

    1. They did invent concrete (without the steel bars) that could explain it.
