We spent a magical day in Venice. It's amazing what can be accomplished in a mere 14 hours! The senior class reunited with Arianna who spent a year at SCA as an exchange student. The group also had the opportunity to tour St. Marc's Basilica of which the interior--from the tiled floors to the ornately decorated domes overhead-- was a sparkling mosaic of scenes from the life of Christ. Afterward, each traveler used a few hours of free time to explore the hundreds of islands that make up the inimitable city of Venice. A relaxing, breathtaking gondola ride preceded our family dinner at a traditional Italian restaurant. Overall, it was an unforgettable day full of beauty, fellowship and discovery.
