Long Flight=Long Day

We landed in Venice and the plan was to take a boat into the city.  Seemed easy but we didn’t know how long it would take.  We had to wait in line for about 45 minutes just to buy the ticket for the boat in the airport.  (It would have been helpful if somebody would say there is a ticket office outside where the boats are.)   Of course Italians are not great at lines.  Lucky for us we had two nice British women in front of us who really knew how to keep people out.  They made sure we stayed behind them. 

We got the boat tickets so it should have been a breeze to go outside and get on a boat right?  Not so easy.  There was about a 15 minute walk with the 50 pound suitcase.  We turned the corner and then saw a line that went on forever.  How many boats are we going to have to wait for???  We just missed one and they only come every half an hour.  We didn’t make the next boat but we got just far enough in line that we had to stand on the very bouncy floating dock.  We had to wait 30 minutes bouncing around.  Honestly, it just wasn’t a little movement.  Glad I don’t get sea sick.  The boat ride took almost 90 minutes and we should have been on a submarine.  All of the seats were basically below the water and you couldn’t see where you were going.  I felt like a bobble head cause I kept falling asleep.  This was the only photo I could shoot while waiting on the very bouncy dock.
