So true Denise - just viewed for the first time in days - how glorious it looks today. How wonderful it would be if it could be kept that way.
Beautiful BLUE waters..a sure sign of rebirth and renewal amidst this crisis...let’s all work to keep is this way
How are you Derek? Did your grand daughter get home safely. We were reading on the Uni site yesterday about the on-line exams etc. Durham is like a ghost town, nearly all the Chinese students have gone home now.... China, a safer option than staying in the U.K. I'm sick of reading/listening to the news, but you just can't help it. We are still getting framing work in, but it's even an effort to concentrate on that. Take care.
Hi Margaret, looks like some good comes out of everything...…., keep well.
Margaret Taylor, I was just thinking the same thing, The water does look a lovely colour blue.
In the midst of all the doom and gloom, just spotted this post on BBC news:-"Residents of Venice are noticing a vast improvement in the quality of the famous canals that run through the city, which are running clear for the first time in years, and fish can even be seen in the usually murky waters. The coronavirus lockdown has left Venice streets empty, and a drastic drop in water traffic means sediment in the canals has been able to settle."Does look nice & blue today!!
very quiet now.A few months ago the complaint was too many cruise ships bringing in far too many tourists causing stress on the infrastructure and the lagoon .
Hang in there, in Italy!!!! Thoughts and prayers are with you all.... my ancestors' country. (I live in the USA)
Hi Mandy and Muriel, when my wife and I visited Venice last year, we stayed in a lovely flat on Giudecca. It was great because we could get away from the crowds in Venice whenever we felt like it, plus Giudecca has some great local food shops as well as some excellent authentic restaurants and is only two minutes the main island. Will definitely go again when this crisis has abated.
Hi Mandy - not many this time of year I guess but approx. six or more arriving and departing every day in summer. You can find the schedule on line They were going to ban the bigger ones coming through but haven't done so far. Trouble is they deliver thousands of day trippers making the well known spots very overcrowded. Still possible to avoid the crowds if you walk away from St Marks and the Rialto area
Haven't seen a cruise ship, Muriel, but, will keep watching!
Hi Mandy - I like to watch the cruise ships go through from one cam to the other.
Thanks Muriel. Found the other cam!!
Hi Derek. Yes it's lovely. Thanks Muriel will check it out!!
There are two webcams on Londra Palace - this one and the one looking towards the Lido - they more or less join together so no need to pan
I agree Mandy, but its still pretty good !!
