Islands and Water Busses
Yesterday I explored the islands of Lido and Murano. Lido is the "beach" island of Venice so I found the public beach area and took some pictures. The seashells there were incredible and I enjoyed just picking through them. I also found a little pool of water where there were "alive" shells walking around (AKA crabs or whatever little creatures that inhabit seashells). I happened to video one of them changing his shell. It's posted on facebook and is a pretty cool little video, if I do say so myself.
After Lido I went back into Venice and took the water bus through the grand canal. I stopped a few times to take pictures and see a few things, but I had fun on the buses. I then took the water bus over to Murano, the island where they do the glass art. I had been there a couple of years ago with my parents, but it was fun to go back. I was even able to find a building that I had taken a picture of then (that I love) and took another picture. Hehehe ... I'm such a dork sometimes.
Today I am off to Florence. I am looking forward to my hostel there as they not only provide free breakfast but also dinner! Wahoo! I also will be seeing David on the 30th. Florence here I come!
