Brilliant photos, Yvonne! Do you know what the red thing is? I’ve never noticed it! Although I’ve noticed other odd things in the water, for which I don’t know the purpose.

Thank you for the nice comment, Caroline.
I had never paid a touch of attention to that red thing. It may have something to do with navigation, those solar panels might supply energy to a light, perhaps. There are 2 access ladders going up to the top. Now, my interest is truly piqued. Maybe I can post it on Facebook and see if any of our Venetian acquaintances can help us!
Caroline, I’ve had an answer on Facebook. It is a light for navigation.
Thanks – that was quick!
It is really lovely but why don’t we see the same perceptive photographs of Myrtleford? I bet a lot of your overseas followers would love to know what your part of Oz was like.

I agree….as much as I adore your pics of our beloved Venezia, I, too, would like some Myrtleford pics. Per favore.
I haven’t been inspired yet, Michelle.
It’s spring there….get out, wander around…I’m sure you’ll find something.
Of course you are probably still resting up from your move and all that unpacking. (Is it done yet? Are you still finding things in strange places?)
I was unpacked the second day, Michelle and haven’t lost anything!
Soon, John. The spirit has to move me! Oh, today’s post has photos from here, but not exactly scenic vistas.
Yvonne I love the illusion that the first photo creates, as if the water is going to start pouring out of the V. Fabulous perspective.
I just happened to look back over my shoulder at the right time, Sue.
The color in these pictures is riveting. The green of the tower, the sky and the water, the haze, the red of the channel marker. I know it rains in Itayly, but I only remember sun…
I always seem to bring the rain with me when I go there, arlingwoman.
It does me good to think of it even when far away.
That darn Italy (and other countries in Europe) has such a monopoly on beauty and fascination, Hilary
The second photo shows an odd place to site a letter-box.
I guess it’s not for Express Post then, Bert.
Yes, Yvonne, Venice is unique and is sat on the sea
But how much time does it resist when we see enormous cruise ships in the laguna creating waves destroying the foundations of the buildings ?
We have to save Venice ;
The new sindaco seems to be in the pocket of the cruise ship contingent, so it may be a tough battle, Michel. ❤
It’s very silly, but my family’s favorite joke whenever a picture of Venice appeared on TV was, “Oops! Somebody’s left the water running.” I’m sorry, it’s not very sophisticated, I know.
But, it’s funny. And, isn’t it nice to have a family joke?
Yes, it’s true. Those kind of jokes become funnier over time because it’s never really about the punchline so much as sharing a moment.
She’s an Enchantress!
She sure is, Susie!
It was a hazy day when I took these photos, caffeinated one
They were still beautiful and intriguing!
I’m not sure I would feel comfortable living there.
It’s not for everyone, Darlene.
Given it always rains when I go there, it’s also a city that floats IN water.
Amen to that MoSY.
It truly is, Julie.
So what are you peering from behind in the first photo?
Those are big fat posts set in the water to act as channel markers, Jane. They’re called briccole. You can see more of them in the second photo.
