Once we got to Venice...travel was all on the water, or by foot over bridges. Stayed in a sumptious Hilton Hotel. After two days on the run we were tired and so glad for a soft bed, and hot water!!

crossed the Grand Canal to get to
St. Marcos piazza.

This area is where we ate lunch, and also had a few minutes to shop. The bridges were all beautiful and unique. This city was the antithesis of where we live, in dry San Juan County, but we surely enjoyed it!
