Boats

Will this be the new style for gondole?

As I walked up the stairs to my apartment, I could see my landlord had left some mail for me on the entry table.

Thank you, Faith and the rest of the mob, for the card from Atherton, Australia. I liked the stamps! And thank you, Linda for your very artistic card and envelope. I had to be extra careful when opening it, so I could save your stickers.

    the ‘fero’ or ‘dolfin’ of that gondola is the one used in the XVII century, you can see it in some 1600’s artist paintings.
    Michela, a venetian one.

    I love the motorised ‘un, although it does look like something out of a 70’s James Bond film (with Roger Moore).

    That dolfin is a very new take on a traditional form. It was tied up on the Cannaregio Canal by the Bar Pizzeria ai Tre Archi.
    Well spotted, Yvonne.

  5. It’s 2:30am in the morning here, so nearly noon there, and I should be getting ready to have a favorite lunch meal at Antiche Carampane rather than being up in the middle of the night, pining away for Venezia… but since I can’t sleep, I’m coming here to visit you and your day, and I feel comforted! 🙂 xox
