More Skywatch here.
And it’s the Grand Canal in Venice. We debated about spending 100 Euros on a gondola cruise (we refused the previous time we were in Venice) but we did it and it was WONDERFUL. Our hotel was situated just near the main gondola basin behind San Marco, and we could look out of the window and watch the activity below. How could we NOT have a gondola ride?
I love how the buildings play a secondary role to the water and sky, even if they are grand palazzi. It emphasises to me how transient and ephemeral La Serenissima in all her faded and sinking glory actually is.
2 Cor 3:11
For if what is passing away was glorious, what remains is much more glorious.
