A traghetto ride across a canal in Venice

It's Sunday fun day! Pyewacket and Trixie and I were looking through our photo album and this is another of the pictures from when She and Alessandro went to Venice at the end of September. They didn't realise that we tagged along...

Here we are crossing a canal outside the Ca D'Oro, on a traghetto! They are just like a gondola, but instead of costing 60 euros or more, they cost half a euro per person. You get to ride across the Grand Canal. Most of the locals stand up for the crossing but we sat down down, and I was scared so I sat on some strange man's lap! And there was a big, black woofie sitting there staring at me!

Oh, that's Pye in the middle and Trixie up the back. See the guy rowing at the back talking on his mobile phone? Oh, and Alessandro LOVED riding the traghetto.

That looks like a very fun adventure! I think you were smart to stay seated. Safety first!

It was furry smart of yoo to sit. Mom always tells da kids in da boat to "sit yoor butt down" cuz dat is how boats tip over, somebody stands up and da boat goes all wobbly.

Never been on any boat before. I might be too scared to be so near to the water.

Wow Tigger! If you are in Venice with the sisters that means you are far away! I would like to invite you to come to my Victorian Tea party Wednesday afternoon...I hope you can stop in for a nice cuppa tea and a crumpet or marzipan mouse.
Love Miss Peach who hopes you get back in time!
