15 June Tuesday
A day in Venice. Found a good park and caught the Ferry to Venice 30m. Wandered the canals of Venice starting at San Marco Plaza. Fed the pigeons and listened to the music from restaurants. Wonderful square. Wandered to Rialto Plaza where the famous bridge over the Grand Canal. Caught the Canal boat down the Grand canal…..Found McDonalds and free toilets no ques.. then a bakery and a good place to eat lunch and watch the action. Caught the canal bus back and got off a couple times on the other side where it was quieter and easygoing. Lots of restaurants cafes nice shops everywhere. Narrow walkways, little bridges over canals. For Dads birthday we decided to have a Gondala ride, through the canals past Marco Polos house. Nice and relaxing and a highlight for us in Venice. Spent a little time at the markets looking for Masqerade masks. A little rain on and off today.
Back to the amazing camp where we watched a tribute to Michael Jackson…and they were good!
