Venice

Karen, Diane, Victoria, Kathleen, Jim and I all opted for the additional two day post trip in Venice.  What a perfect ending for a perfect trip!

Here are Beth and Victoria living large in the back of our water taxi, as we make our way to the Hotel Giorgione.

Meanwhile,  I’m up front, keeping my eyes on the back of our driver, who seems to be making quite a few waves.  He could teach the NYC cabbies a thing or two…

The Venetians sure know how to live.  The traffic doesn’t stress THIS guy out!  I will confess, though, I’m glad he wasn’t driving OUR taxi.  Something about steering with his foot just didn’t feel reassuring.

Quick turn down a side canal and we’re almost there.  Hope Victoria and Beth duck before we get to that low bridge.

Are you ready for some Venice sights?  Here goes:

Okay, so I’ve done land and sea.  How about air?  Well, this is about as close as I could get to an aerial view.

That’s all for today’s post.  More Venice shots tomorrow.
