... By now we are starting to understand the layout of the town, much better. That means we only get lost every 15 minutes - not every 5! ...OK, yes, Dad gets lost. Never volunteer to be the navigator in Venice! Tonight the ship is staying in Venice overnight, but we are all to exhausted to go out again. The kids are desperate to get back to their friends and Pete and I have a relaxed dinner with a couple from Scotland and a couple from the States. This morning we headed ...

... off in the little town where we shopped. Then, back to the ship. We were starving as breakfast was just a little fruit. We ate in the LIDO room instead od our dressy table. Not as good, for sure.
