The houses and boats are colour co-ordinated. What a delight smile
Picturit: This was something else and so well kept. I think they have to maintain these colours and and cannot change it.

A seriously gorgeous image, Astrid.

I like the novel solution to avoiding scraping the boat's side.
Picturit: I think they have their own forest where they get the poles to put in the water. This is so 'Venetian and surrounding'... wink
Thank you, Ray.
I am so glad you were finally able to see this novelty of the Venetian lagoon, Astrid. Totally worth the experience, right?!
Picturit: You know I love boat rides so this was a treat over and over. The colourful houses are a delight and wonderful to see.

A strange but pleasing place Astrid, a mini Venice. I like your shop, what do you sell?
Picturit: Indeed it looks like a mini Venice. I try to sell those rubber-bumper-pads we use in Hollandshire to keep the boats from bumping into the dock/quay, they rather chop trees and use those sad

Somewhere I've always wanted to go to; a photographers dream. I love the colours of the houses and the watery "street"; no "jay walking" there!
Picturit: We were so happy with the weather and it was a delight to 'finally' walk in the famous town. In real life it is much smaller than I imagined. HA, mayby at night after a few drinks some might go 'jay walking' for they think they can 'walk on water'... HA..

a wonderful scene with all the colourful houses!
Picturit: Have you been here, Philine. It is worth the trip with the Vaperatto.
Thank you, Philine.
A paint manufacturer's paradise Lady P
Picturit: I thought so too, Bill.... for they have to keep the houses in tip-top condition paint-wise...
I love this island, and I note that the Astrid shop is the brightest. How appropriate. Great picture of this lovely place.
Picturit: This is a wonderful colourful town with such nice canals, we were glad it was not that busy.. Thank you, Chad (and somebody has to have the biggest shop wink )
C'est magnifique avec ces maisons de toutes les couleurs.
Picturit: We thought so too, Martine, thank you.
Some places that have colourful row houses like this call them 'jelly bean houses'. Quite a sight isn't it.
Picturit: I love the name for those houses, It is wonderful, I really loved it.
What a beautiful boat Friday!! Love your shop!
Picturit: wink... Thank you, Robin, I try to sell those 'rubber-bumper-pads' for boats, nobody wants them grin...
Who wouldn't love to have a walk along there, it is a colour photogrphers delight.
Picturit: This is the right word 'colour photographers delight'... it is and I was impressed with it.
Looks almost like a toy town!
Picturit: It felt like a toy town... so small and so wonderful.
a remarkable shot of this place, Astrid. i see that the light is coming from the right, yet the buildings to the right of the canal are somewhat glowing.
Picturit: It was very difficult to get a proper picture of these houses, the sky was so bright and the sun so bright too and the shade was so 'shady' that I had to 'lighten up' the picture a little, something I normally never do, but in this case I needed it.

Do they get many drownings in the canals, Astrid?
Picturit: I try to google it and no answers, the only thing what might happen is they fall in because of too many tourists or they fall in because of too much alcohol... I think drowning is rare for there is always a boat nearby to pick them out of the water... my guess... smile
Brilliant colors...
Picturit: Thank you so much, Larry. It was a delight to see this kind of houses all over.

What a place and what a picture. One day, I may go here.
Picturit: I think you and your wife will enjoy it (don't go in high season though).
We had a great time there.
Philine will go there again in a few weeks.
Such beautiful color you've captured here, Astrid!!! And everything looks so clean!
Picturit: It was spotless. I have to say that they really maintain the city and such a difference with the houses in Venice, which had a lot of water damage.
