Venice Arrival!

After our killer day driving yesterday, 4 hours didn't seem like much today. But then we had to figure out the parking. And "Helen", the GPS, seemed to think that we could drive right to the hotel, which was clearly just wrong. She kept telling us to turn right onto something that just didn't exist. Water, Helen. Just water. We parked in the municipal lot and got tickets for the Vaporetto and lugged all our stuff to the wharf. I thought we packed light. I thought we sent a bunch of stuff home with Kent and Steve. Clearly I was just wrong too.

Here we are!
 Jordan and Kathy are not convinced that we are in the right place.
