On the vaporetto
Near Rialto Market
Mum and Clare
The writing's on the wall
The stall from which we purchased fruit and salad stuff, including some of those strawberries which turned out to be delicious, sweet and juicy.
I want these shoes!
Very important stop to purchase chocolate in vast quantities.
A staple of tourist sales in Venice.
Mum buying some gloves from friendly stallholder near Rialto Bridge.
Artist at work near Rialto Bridge.
Was trying to discreetly photograph the man and his dog, but obviously rumbled by the woman!
More vaporetto passengers.
In the background is the calle which is a shortcut to our apartment from the vaporetto stop.
Arsenale Bridge, opposite our apartment.
I've had SO much fun with the wonderful light today!
In the afternoon while Mum and Clare did their own thing, I caught the number 1 vaporetto up to Ferrovia train station, as I've never visited it before, to check out some trains.
Contre-jour to die for.
The piazza in front of the station.
I think this is the newest bridge in Venice, linking the coach station to the train station and it is sensibly shallow-stepped to accommodate all those hefting heavy suitcases.
Views from the bridge.
A close-up of that hoarding surrounding Santa Chiara.
Waiting for a taxi Venice-style.
A reflective self-portrait on the vaporetto stop.
too tired and not really feeling hungry!
