A Boat Named Claudio

Real Estate Agent with Vision Quest Realty WV0026375


My husband, Claude, and I went to Italy for three weeks in November 2006.  First stop was Venice for three nights.  It was indeed a beautiful place to visit and we had a wonderful time.  Our best friends went on this trip with us, Mike and Susette Windsor.  Mike, and other friends would sometimes refer to Claude as Claudio and when we saw this boat with the name "Claudio" painted on the side of the boat, well you know we had to get a photo.

From Venice, we went to Florence and on to Rome. Would love to return to Italy one day.




The above photo of my husband is an entry for Dick Greenberg's ActiveRain 2016 Photography Contest. Real Life - People. 

I used my Nikon high definition Coolpix S4100 camera for this photo.

Perhaps that boat with Claudio's name on it is a sign you will indeed return to Italy one day!

Claudio looks so happy!!! You must have had a wonderful time! I've been to Florence, Milan, and Tuscany more than once but never to Venice or Rome. 

I really hope you and Claudio get to go back to Italy soon! You both deserve it!!! Who knows, you may find a boat with the name Rebecca!
