Yesterday was our first full day in Venice. We settled into our apartment and then bought an iMob card which is basically a transit card for the boat. The trip down the Grand Canal was wonderful.

Chicken Geoge (right) came on the trip with us and met a girlfriend!  Love on the Grand Canal.


My friends sitting in the Campo Santa Marhgerita drinking cappuccino.


I will just post some photos here!


Santa Marhgerita.


The new bridge over the Grand Canal.  Does not fit in with the old style bridges of Venice.  It is glass.

 At San Marco Square with a big cruise boat coming in.
Sharyln looking at the beautiful jewelry!

Pistachio cookies.

Window displays!

All things are recycled out of Venice.  This is the garbage boat in the canal that picks it up.  It is all hand-carted to the boats.
