Interesting watching the time lapse on this cam - 4 or 5 cruise ships coming in at a time in one day. Can understand the locals unease. Difficult balance to get re tourism v environment.
Fantastic fireworks display tonight (21/07/19)
At least 5 injured according to one report. Those damn things should be not be allowed anywhere near this beautiful city!
Thanks to Google translate Herman posted: “I also heard of that collision. hopefully there are no hurt”. ;)
Ik hoorde ook van die aanvaring. hopelijk zijn er geen gekwetsten.
02.06.19. Heard the MSC Opera cruise ship has had a collision today in the Venice harbour - breaking away from a tug and unable to slow down, colliding into a river boat. :(
Hi Derek,Wonderful! We love it too. I'm so glad they're enjoying the trip.
Hi Janie, they are there now, and having a great time. They are staying at the Bauer Casanova Hotel, rather nice it looks. We were there a few years ago, stayed at Hotel Principe on the Canal. Love Venice.
Hi Derek. Yes the weather was lovely...in the low 60s so fine to sit out for lunch in the sunshine but cool for walking around. Tell them to have a great time. Are they staying in the city or out at the Lido?
Hi Janie, was the weather good?My wife and her sister are going over there next weekend.
I was in Venice last week and took the opportunity to walk down to see the two guys I often see selling little blue lit helicopter toys by the vaporetto stop. I explained about the camera and we had a good laugh about them being famous! Of course I bought some toys too. Good luck guys, it was great to meet you.
Groetjes uit Bugge, het Venetië van het noorden.

Poor Venice! You've suffered so much lately. Where I'm from, we are no strangers to flooding, it's damage, and lives lost. We feel bad for your city and pray for your recovery.
