ABC Wednesday—F is for "flotilla"

It took seven gondolas to accommodate
this large group.  That's a lot of euros for
my favorite Venetian workforce!

  1. The gondoliers must have loved seeing this crowd coming. When they're in a line like this though, it reminds me of a Disneyland ride.

  2. You appear to be the locus of good-natured cheer, Alexa. The people in the first gondola are smiling at you. We are smiling with you.

    The way the gondolas are pulled over to the side makes it look like they are waiting to let some boat with the right of way pass; or that they are waiting in line as passengers disembark, from each boat in turn, at a place behind you.

  3. we love the tourists, the gondoliers smiled.

  4. What a FINE FOTO for this meme today. Wouldn't I love to be having FUN with the rest of this FANTASTIC group, and besides, I think that gondoliers are FABULOUS! Kate, ABC Team

  5. I remember riding in a gondola, but it wasn't as exciting as I thought it would be. wonderful perspective in this shot...
