Even on a rainy, high tide kind of day, the colors of Burano are magic on the water.
Venice herself is timeless, but we are not, and the time we’re privileged to spend there we think should be devoted to reflection, absorbing its essence, and appreciation for its timecapsule fairy tale presence.
Come with us and embrace the mystery:
Apparently it’s not so simple as just dredging an alternate channel for the 90,000 ton floating behemoths to traverse, as that might worsen flooding and churn up sediments from an unregulated industrial era that have settled on the bottom and been covered up. Venice needs tourism, yes, to survive as we know it, but they need to find a way to dock the huge ships farther out and ferry passengers in via vaporetto.
Quite a bit later than most of the 21st Century, but here we are. Please share and comment!
Thanks to Venice, Italy’s Facebook page for sharing my gondola picture! I love looking at this picture and thinking about the next time I’ll be standing in that spot. Standing there you feel the vibrations, the ripples from an ancient culture echoing for all time. Come see it with us!
