We had a great sit-down breakfast at the hotel today, then set off in a water taxi to Murano island to see the glass blowers.
The water taxi was much more like a "water limo" with wood and brass cabin and cream-colored leather seats.
The glass on Murano was amazing! Watching the glass blowers do their thing was unbelievable. Even after watching them start with plain glass and work it, I'm still in awe at what they are able to do. I took a ton of pictures of sculptures that I loved, but couldn't afford.
Robs spoiled herself and bout six wine glasses and a
|Signing her life away.|
|Squid was kind enough to model the jewelry.|
The rest of the day was very laid back and relaxed. Mrs Squid and I walked around while she finished up her shopping. Then Squid, Kev, Robs and I went for gelato. I think I'm going to go through gelato withdrawal when I get back to the States.
|NEVER pass up an opportunity for gelato. Never. Ever. Never.|
After dinner, Squid, Mrs Squid, Robs and I walked to San Marco Square again to see it at night. I was hopeful that it would flood so I could get some cool pictures of the reflection of the square in the water.
|That's the extent of the flooding, which is a good thing.|
Venice at night is every bit at beautiful as it is during the day, and we had a good time wandering through all of the alleys, even if Robs and I kinda got lost and worried Squid.
Headed home tomorrow. As much as I'd like to stay here, I miss the kids and home. I just hope that I'll be able to bring them back with me one day.
