We woke up early this morning and I went out to our balcony in order to take some early morning photographs as our cruise ship entered Venice.
After taking some photos we went to get some breakfast before getting in line to depart our ship as soon as we could.
We planned on spending as much time in Venice as possible because we had to be back on board before 5pm, for our 6pm sail off out of Venice to start the second week of our 2 week cruise. We would be stopping off at several Greek Islands.
This would probably be the last time that we would be in Venice for several years and maybe for good, so we wanted to make the most of our day there.
I ended up taking more than 500 photos throughout the course of the morning, day and evening. Because of the number of photographs I will be dividing this post into 3 parts so that the photos will load up quicker. So with that being said let's continue with our days worth of activities - Part #3:
The time has come for our sail off out of Venice, Italy. We had a great day on this very enchanting island and who knows...maybe one day in the future we will make it back but until that day comes Antico Forno will remain a fond and delicious memory...aahhh pizza!
There were several other ships docked in this big marina/terminal area so we had to wait our turn before heading out. Below is the Seabourn Odyssey
Below is the Aida Vita. Aida is a German Cruise company
Below is the lexury yaht...Carinthia V1. This ship was docked in the same place 2 years ago

They had some beautiful boats for both work and pleasure

Another mega luxury yacht...the Dynasty
A longboat from UniWorld...The River Countess
Scenes from our departure from Venice via Guidecca Canal
I saw this rather odd cloud formation...not really sure whether it was a cloud or something else but it kind of reminded me of an angel. Whatever it was or whatever caused it to have the shape it did, it was really unusual looking.
There looks like some sort of rotation in the lower section of this "cloud"

Nest stop will be Corfu, Greece
