saturday sur mer (excuse the french)

Full pelt - outside the basilica on Torcello

Saturday - I'd like to present our Saturday.
After a lazy start (yet again) we set out, buying 12h vaporetto tickets to get us out to Murano and islands further north. We managed to make sense of the ACTV waterbus lines and our first stop was Murano, the glass island. The glass is amazing but, a little like the gold souks of Dubai, enough is enough eventually.
Next stop - Torcello for the beautiful Byzantine friezes in the basilica (sadly, no bell towerclimb), then on to Burano and Mazzarbo, the island of cats. No cats, but plenty of artichokes.
Cats aplenty on Burano. Captured a few daily pussies for flickr.
Then back home via a meal out.
Zzzzs for all.

How the heck to I manage a trip here to stay for a month?
