We walked around Venice for a few hours, bought some souvenir clown heads (which will make ...
... which clearly was the reason for our Taxi not turning up on time. We were under cover but it was very breezey and all we wanted to do was get on board.
After waiting for over an hour it finally arrived and then took over an hour to get to our stop - San Zaccaria.
At least we got to chat to a lovely young Aussie who had been working as a Nanny in 'Antibes' for 5 months.

... we took the ferry from the northern end of the island, to the southern part. We meant to get off the ferry around San Marco so we could see the cathedral and maybe the Bridge of Sorrows, but we accidentally got off a little bit too early. Which was fine with us since we were in a less visited part of the town and were able to walk around and see a part of the island that many others choose to ignore. We walked right along the water's edge taking in the feel of ...
