It doesn’t take much to get Dr. Blake all teary. One of the many things I love about him. In this case, it’s not hard to understand. Our sailing ship leaving Venice with the Piazza San Marco in the background. The perfect end to wonderful first-time visit for him to this splendid city. The prospect of two weeks on a Windstar cruise. And the “sail away” music (schmaltzy as it is) playing over the ship’s sound system as we approach the Lido. Basta.
