Day At Sea And On Our Way To Corfu, Greece

Today is Sunday, October 4th and it is a Day at Sea for us so we wont be in a port today. We are heading towards Corfu, Greece and we should be there tomorrow morning.
I did get the chance to take just a few photos today. At times the sea was extremely calm and flat...like glass. While day dreaming staring out upon the sea I noticed out of the corner of my eye something jumping out of the water off in the distance. Then I saw several more splashes. Although these splashes and jumps were a ways off I tried to catch a few of them with my camera. I was lucky enough to get a few photos of these jumpers...possibly dolphins. I apologize for the quality of these   jumping fish photos. They were pretty far off so I was lucky to get what I did:


  

 I call this one "Endless Daydream"

The sun was very bright when I took these but I tried to cool them down just a bit



Next stop is Corfu, Greece. See you there!

Back In Venice After The First Week Of Our Cruise Part 3

Today is Saturday, October 3rd and our cruise ship has returned and docked back in Venice. Some people on the cruise will be leaving us after their week long cruise, while others of us like ourselves will be continuing on for the 2nd week of our back to back cruise.
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

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"
