Woody Boats galore, but man oh man that aint a cheap ride. 48 Euros a person just to get on the boat and then an amount per 10 minutes.

Well, we sure found some boats alright. Wow, this is an amazing place, sadly though the entire planet knows it as well, and its a large crowd for sure. A bazillion different languages and the best people watching on the planet. It’s amazing to see what happens when you only can get around by boat, the innovation and design is amazing. I can see this as a wonderful life, except for all of us tourists ruining the place. Then again, we are the economy here for sure, so like everything in life, there is a ballence in the world. Today we go to the Glass Island. I am oddly done for a bit with boat watching. Or maybe not. Enjoy the boats!

    Yeah! You found all the boats! Now take a break from boats and see if you can find anything good to eat. Then see if you can find a boat on the local Craigslist so you can drive around without paying every 10 minutes. Don’t tell your wife l, she will love the surprise.

    BTW, everyone is on their phone all the time because they need to keep checking to see if they made it onto the world famous WoodyBoater website.

    I like the last shot of the pontoon boat, or as the Italians say it “pontone”!

    Just realized why I never had the urge to go there. I’m color blind and would not be able to fully enjoy it. Glad to see it with captions. Or maybe it’s the flight.

    Great Pics!! You have found boats in Europe. I loved Venice. Its hard to believe it is all water, islands, and boats. Enjoy the boats, the people, the buildings. Sample some fine food, great wine, and Moretti beer. Makes me want to go back.

    Takes me back to one of my favorite places – we were there last three years ago. If you have time, get out to Burano – home of Venetian Lace. It is a small version of Venice that maintains the charm of the area and looks much like Venice did before WWII. A nice afternoon stroll with the Boatress through the little town without the constant hustle experienced in Venice – clean, colorful buildings, nice little restaurants – you would enjoy it.

      Matt. A short walk from San Marco is an Italian naval museum, right next to the Venetian Arsenal which are very old shipyards. Maybe 15 years ago we did a Riva event there and based out of this really old place. The museum is named Museo Storico Navale.

      We were there for almost a week and ended taking about 30 Rivas down the grand canal!

    Loved Venice!!!!!!! The scary part was they drive their boats like they drive their cars and taxi’s. Coming in with the cruise ship they would cut it off and think nothing of it!!!!!!!

    To bad you didn’t see Sam Barcroft driving around Venice in his Ferrari.

    Google his name.
