Venice at High Water

Right, let's get this over with, shall we?

MrM was right.

It was very high water in Venice.

A record flood in fact.

We needed wellies.

I shouldn't have argued.

Wellies are cool in Venice.

Even the gondoliers wear them.

Luckily, I was forced to take mine.

There, that wasn't so painful was it?


  1. Water there and in NY and NJ in the States. Great photos. Thinking upon Little Dorrit as I looked at your photos. Have a wonderful trip!

  2. Oh my goodness! I hope you still had a good time :)

  3. Venice always looks beautiful come hell or high water.

  4. No, not too painful. Worth it I'd say just to be able to take beautiful photos like the sixth one down with the stunning reflections.

  5. MrsM's wellies were ubercool - if they passed muster for Port Eliot Festival then Venice was their natural next serious outing. Difficult to put wellies (stivali di gomma is an extension to my Italian vocabulary) into cabin baggage.

    I don't think the young man in the last photo minded too much giving a lift by the way

  6. Was he equally good at not crowing over his self-evident superior packing judgement?

  7. This is the way that conversation goes in my house:

    Me: You were right.
    Him: But more importantly?
    Me: I was wrong.

  8. I think it is very important not to make waves when one is right as therein lies ones comeuppance

  9. Oh you guys are so polite and sweet to eachother.
    Nothing else but "I told you so" and waving hands and blah blah blah would occur here ...

    But we're Italians ... so there.

    I thought of you a LOT while watching the news and pics of acqua alta ... sigh ...

  10. Well done MrsM for acquiescing and to MrM for forethought.

    Glad you had a good time.


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
