Today we had abundant sunshine as the weather report stated while we traipsed to Burano.

Taking the early morning boat to Zacheria stop we had a pretty shot of the Doges Palace.

Took the LN vaporetto from Zacheria stop to Burano. What a beautiful ride, taking about 45 minutes. See the mountains in the background.

A photo from the other day that I wanted to post was a cruise ship passing by Venice. It was very strange and kept coming by, looking like a huge building. Note at the end of the canal.

Burano is a sleepy little village compared to Venice. Today, Thursday, it wasn't too busy. Coming up to the island you get a good view of the San Martino church and the leaning bell tower. It leans 15 degrees the same as Pisa. Isn't it cool?

And then of course there are all the colorful houses. The water was coming over the top of the canals when we got there.

The little bead shop was still there (above).

We stopped in Murano on the way home to visit Roberto at the Carlo Dona shop as Sharlyn wanted some more tools! And we looked at all the beautiful shops again.

Above is some street art on Murano and the UPS boat!

Waiting for the vaporetto home I saw some kayakers! Unusual to see that.

Caio from Venice!
